Need a change from chicken or fish, but still need low calories?
THIS is your meat friends!
Super low in calories and super Delicious! This is also very quick in the oven. Searing it on the stove is the key. It retains all its juices and it won’t disappoint.
I make pork tenderloin weekly in our house simply because I have picky kids that don’t like much meat at all or at least not any type of chewy meat. This melts in their mouth and they ALWAYS eat what I plated them.
Weight conscious, kid friendly…..Win win to me and hopefully to you. 🙂
My package had two loins in it, but the seasoning mixture I made is only enough for one tenderloin. I made the other purposefully plain for the children.
Other sides that would be yummy with this fantastic main course:
Basically ANY side would be delicious with this meat!
