Sometimes you want to take it up a notch for dinner. Maybe it’s to celebrate. Maybe it’s to reconnect. Or maybe, just because it is Thursday night. The problem I find, is that when you want to take dinner up a notch, all I can find are calorie-laden recipes (thank you Pinterest) that take me off my health goals and have leftovers that can taunt me for days. NO MORE! This Healthy Crispy Dijon Pork Tenderloin Recipe reminds me of an old school Pork Tenderloin Sandwich without all the fat, guilt, and extra grease. It’s really easy to make, is low in calories and could be whipped up on weeknight (just because) or a weekend (well, just because) with ease.
Healthy Crispy Dijon Pork Tenderloin Recipe
Recipe Yields: 4 servings (2 slices per person) Ingredients (1) 1-pound Pork Tenderloin, trimmed and sliced into 1 inch slices (should have at least 8 slices) 1/4 cup of Dijon Mustard (I like the grainy kind) 1 cup of Panko Breadcrumbs 1/4 cup of Fresh Parsley, chopped 1 tablespoon of Fresh Rosemary, chopped (if using dried, use 1/2 teaspoon) 1 tablespoon Fresh Thyme, chopped (if using dried, use 1/2 teaspoon) Dash of Pepper Dash of Salt 2 to 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil, divided Non-stick Spray Directions
By using a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet, you prevent the pork from sitting in the juices that will run out of it, therefore it doesn’t get soggy. If you place the pork directly onto the baking sheet, the side that is on the sheet will end up with soggy crust.
6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
