Healthy eaters often turn to chicken as a means of satisfying their protein needs. Don’t forget about pork – the other white meat! It’s easy to prepare and goes a long way. I made this recipe last week and it was a hit the first and second time around!
If you are a healthy eater like me, you probably eat a lot of lean meats (unless you are vegetarian of course.) And if you are like me, that probably includes a lot of chicken. It’s the “go to protein!” Well, I don’t know about you, but I get sick of chicken. That’s why I turn to pork or other lean meats whenever possible. Port tenderloin is lean, high in protein, easy to cook and very tasty.
While it’s easy to marinade meats, they can sometimes become tasteless or high in sugar. That’s why I often turn to a good rub. This rub is truly simple, cheap and creates a lovely crust on the meat when grilling. Plus, it packs a kick because it includes one of my all time favorite spices, Chipotle Chili powder.
All of my meals center around protein. If you want to be lean, yours should too. Chicken and turkey can grow old after a while so I’m always looking for recipes that use other forms of protein. Tenderloin is a great option because it is super lean, easy to prepare and yummy! This simple marinade is fast, smokey and versatile. Better yet, you’ll have leftovers that will make a great pork stir fry a couple days later.
