BBQ Pork Tenderloin


Trey (3 1/2 months) is my little helper


Here is an easy and nutritious meal for you this Wednesday evening....



Store bought and marinaded pork tenderloin (see health info below) grilled according to packaged directions....yes, convenience rules sometimes.
Grilled sweet potato rings" simply slice thin, spray with olive oil, sprinkle some sea salt, and set on grill till tender. I use a grill cooking pan with hole.
Drizzle lemon infused olive oil (can buy at HyVee) over cleaned asparagus and set on grill in pan or saute on stove top over medium heat. Lemon olive oil is a great salad dressing as well!

One of the leanest cuts of pork.

Proteins
According to USDA.gov, a 3-oz. serving of pork tenderloin contains 14.99 g of protein.
Vitamins
Pork tenderloin is a good source of B vitamins.
Minerals
Pork tenderloin contains phosphorus, magnesium, iron and zinc.

Benefits
Pork tenderloin is a very lean meat choice. According to The Other White Meat, USDA studies show that pork is leaner than skinless chicken breast per serving. A 3-oz. serving of pork has 2.98 g of fat, while chicken breast has 3.03 g of fat. This allows pork tenderloin to add variety and nutrition to a diet without adding fat.
