As you near the end of your healthy week you’re likely tired of chicken, fed up with fish, and boiled over by egg whites. What’s a healthy cook to do? Try a different protein with tons of flavor – Chimichurri Pork Tenderloin! Pork Tenderloin is very lean and tastes great prepared a multitude of ways. You can grill it, bake it or my personal favorite – set it and forget it in the slow cooker (Crockpot).
The Chimichurri Pork Tenderloin takes a little bit of preparation but once it’s in the pot, it’s sit back and smell the flavor success! To prepare you’ll need a high power blender or food processor.
1 Bunch of Cilantro (stems cut off)
1 Bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley (stems cut off)
1/2 of a medium red onion
4-5 peeled cloves of garlic
Juice of 1.5 limes
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TSP salt
1 TSP red pepper flakes
Place all of the above ingredients in your food processor and pulse until combined. Place trimmed Pork Tenderloin in the slow cooker and top with Chimichurri sauce. You may want to reserve some of the sauce for serving with the pork once it’s cooked. Cook on low for 4-6 hours depending on the thickness of your tenderloins. Slice on a cutting board and serve with the reserved Chimichurri Sauce.
