Tuscan Pork Tenderloin Low-Calorie


One of my favorite meals I’ve recently made featured this tuscan pork tenderloin recipe. It came out so flavorful and it’s easy and fast to make. We don’t eat pork a lot in our house, aside from the occasional porkchop. My local grocery store had pork tenderloins on a great sale, so I decided to give a new recipe a try.


It starts out with a marinade that can be done an hour before cooking, or even the night before. It’s completely up to you, and your tenderloin will turn out fantastic either way. This one was even my kids all ate, and they can be pretty picky. It’s not easy finding meals where one of them doesn’t complain in one way or another.



The marinade is very easy and you are basically rubbing garlic and herbs into the tenderloin. After that I wrapped it up tightly in plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for several hours. When it was time to unwrap and cook, the smells were so fantastic. It doesn’t take long to cook this tuscan pork tenderloin either and the end result was a juicy, delicious tenderloin.


This is a main dish that could have a variety of sides served with it. We did potatoes, but you could also do rice, salad or any variety of veggies. I personally love roasting zucchini. I would love to hear what you think of this and what sides you serve it with.
