Weve all seen the ads Pork:
The Other White Meat! As we all try to trim down with
our New Years Resolution it makes sense to examine other
forms of meat that are less in fat. Lean pork, such as pork
tenderloin, contains about the same amount of fat as a boneless,
skinless chicken breast. Extremely tender and juicy when prepared
correctly, pork tenderloin is an excellent low-fat meat option
to incorporate into your diet. Not only is pork tenderloin
low in fat but it also contains iron, magnesium, phosphorous,
potassium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B12 and B6.
So, if you are looking for an alternative to boneless, skinless
chicken breasts, pork tenderloin is a great option.
Cooking Pork Tenderloin:
Pork tenderloin is very simple to prepare.
We prefer to brown the tenderloin in a skillet with a little
olive oil, then transfer the skillet to the oven and bake
at 350° F for about 30-40 minutes or until the internal
temperature reaches 155° F. Tent with foil and let rest
for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
