Walnut Crusted Pork Tenderloin

walnut-crusted-pork-tenderloin_filteredWhen I started Whole 30 in October 2016 I quickly browsed the cookbook and picked my top dinner choices. I can’t give an exact reason why but the ingredients were purchased on my first Whole 30 shopping trip – yet it took me more than two months to actually make this dish!

Lesson learned – next time don’t be afraid to try something new.

This was DELICIOUS – and just so different from our typical “week night meals”.

In my mind I think I assumed that it was more complicated than it looked…but trust me when I say…if I can make this  – ANYONE CAN!!!

Walnut crusted pork tenderloin with flowers.jpgWHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 TBS mustard powder
  • 1 TBS paprika
  • 1 TBS onion powder
  • 1 TBS garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Remove pork from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Pat the pork dry with a paper towel
  4. Mix the mustard powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and paprika  in a small bowl and rub the pork evenly with seasoning mixture.
  5. In a food processor (the mini handheld pampered chef one works great!!!) – or by hand – pulse or chop the walnuts until finely chopped.
  6. Coat the pork evenly  with the chopped walnuts.
  7. Place the pork tenderloin in a baking pan ( I used a 7″x11″ pyrex dish and it worked perfectly!) and roast 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
  8. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes.
  9. Slice the tenderloin into 1/2 inch thick medallions.

Serve with your veggie of choice and more importantly ENJOY!!!

NOTE: I doubled this recipe (as I do with most recipes to ease the meal prep later in the week!!!) and I will vouch the leftovers were just as amazing as night 1!
