Have you tried our Keto Spinach & Feta Stuffed Hasselback Chicken? It works with pork tenderloin too!
This dish has all of the flavours of a good roast dinner without any of the fuss. And the SMELL that wafts through your house when you cook it is simply divine. It's a tasty keto dinner recipe in less than 45 minutes.
If pumpkin is not in season you can always use butternut squash or even zucchini.
Using pork loin means that this low-carb dish cooks very quickly but be careful not to overcook them as they can easily turn tough. Cut your fillings quite thin so as to cook everything through evenly. Enjoy!
Top: Pan-roast the Tenderloins Before Baking
For extra flavour boost, you can optionally brown the tenderloins in a skillet before baking.
To do that, pat the tenderloin dry with a paper towel, and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet greased with a tablespoon of ghee over a high heat. Add the tenderloin, one at a time, and cook until browned on all sides, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and let them cool for a few minutes before making the slits. Bake with the fillings as per recipe for about 20 minutes. Easy!
