Pork tenderloin is a favorite of mine for several reasons, and it’s something I rely on for dinner parties on the regular.

It’s easy to prepare, it’s impressive if done right, and it’s less expensive than cuts of beef that people associate with fancy or elegant.

This recipes uses a combination of almond flour — for texture and to keep it gluten-free — and two of my favorite Ava Jane’s Kitchen spice blends, Nana’s Italian seasoning and Sayulita Steak and Veg.

The pork tenderloin is rolled in the seasoning mix, seared in a skillet and then baked until done. It’s so easy, but so delicious and I urge you to make this sooner rather than later.

Served with a green veggie (I like sautéed spinach) and your favorite starch — mashed potatoes or rice pilaf are great choices — this is a restaurant quality meal for a fraction of the cost.
