Delicious Keto Pork Tenderloin Skewers

Louise Hendon | April 7

This is a quick and easy pork tenderloin recipe that can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Don’t worry, you don’t have to have an outside cooking space for this one.  You can use your oven instead…or if you prefer to grill, go ahead!

To make sure the meat will be full of taste, let it rest overnight in the marinade. You can choose your favorite seasoning and flavors for the marinade – for a spicy option, try using cajun spices instead.

You can serve it as a stand-alone dish, but if your dear ones ask you for something else, you can add a dipping BBQ sauce to it, or serve it alongside this amazing Keto Loaded Egg Salad Recipe.

  • Total Time: 30 min (+ 8 hours marinating time)
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork tenderloin, slice into small cubes (approx. 1/2-inch width)
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning (or other seasoning of your choice)
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Equipement: 10-15 bamboo skewers, 4-inch length


Instructions

  1. Before using the bamboo skewers, soak them in room temperature water for at least 2-3 hours.
  2. To make the marinade, mix together the olive oil, seasoning, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a ziplock bag. Place the pork cubes into the bag, seal it, shake it up, and store in the fridge overnight or, if you’re in a rush, for at least 2 hours. 
  3. Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C).
  4. Drip off the marinade before placing the meat onto the skewers, then pack the slices tight onto the skewers.
  5. Place your skewers into the oven (place a pan under them to catch any drippings).
  6. Cook for 15 minutes and then turn the skewers over and cook for another 5 minutes (check the pork is fully cooked with internal temperature of at least 145 F).
