I don’t eat pork very often, but when I do, I choose a lean ground pork for the recipe, or my personal favorite, pork tenderloin! Tenderloin is one of the leanest cut of the meat. 3 oz. of pork tenderloin can offer up to 22 grams of protein!
I personally choose a Niman Ranch pork tenderloin – they promote fresh, humanely raised pork that is fed a 100% vegetarian diet with no hormones or antibiotics. However, any pork tenderloin you choose will work for this recipe.
Just make sure when cooking it reaches the internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
