WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Whether you’re cooking up a pork tenderloin for yourself or a special friend, it is guaranteed to be a big hit. This recipe is the perfect example of a well rounded, delicious and satisfying meal, especially for your carnivorous cravings. Did you know that the tenderloin is the leanest cut of pork? Pork tenderloins meet the guidelines for an “extra lean” cut of meat, which has <5 grams of total fat, <2 grams of saturated fats and <95 mg of cholesterol. Also, a 3 ounce serving of pork contains 50% of the daily value for iron in the heme form, which is easily absorbed in the body. The vitamin C in the spinach and carrots will aid in the absorption of iron in your body too and balance out the overall meal. You’ll feel like a master in the kitchen and a master of your health if you slip roasted pork tenderloin into your repertoire a couple of times a month. Enjoy!
