Plan Tonight’s Dinner With These 3 Nutritious Pork Recipes

April 8, 2014 1:08 pm

While we’ve all had a classic pork chop, most people aren’t aware of the many other recipes involving pork. If you want to expand your at-home culinary creations without ruining your healthy diet, these delicious and nutritious pork recipes from the NIH will help you do just that:

Pork Chops in Warm Cherry Sauce
Add a sweet, tangy update to the usual pork chop with this simple recipe. By cooking the meat in red wine, cherries and a few common spices, this dish is both elegant and quick enough to prepare after a long day at work.

Pork Mignons With French Applesauce
Continuing the fruity flavor trend, this pork dish uses applesauce to add taste without adding fat and calories. These pork mignons add up to only 250 calories and a full 26 grams of healthy protein, with a cinnamon and apple flavor that’s perfect for fall or winter dinners.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin
The lean pork tenderloin has a texture similar to chicken, which makes it simple and quick to prepare. Seasoning with garlic, soy sauce and fish sauce helps the dish take on an Asian flavor that tastes much more complex than it actually is. At only 8 grams of fat, you really can’t go wrong with this unique pork recipe.
