Keto Cabbage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Louise Hendon | January 27

What can make pork tenderloin even tastier?  How about delicious vegetables stuffed into the middle – that way you don’t even have to cook a separate side dish!

At first, this pork tenderloin recipe can seem a little bit complex, but you’ll soon see just how simple it is to roll the vegetables into the center to create the stuffing.

It only takes 40 minutes to cook in the oven so you have time to make it for dinner after you get home.  

I’ve chosen to stuff this pork tenderloin with cabbage and garlic as I find the slightly sweet flavor from the cabbage goes really well with pork.  But you can change it up and try new combinations with whatever you have handy in your fridge.

  5. Roll the tenderloin up and secure with cooking twine or cocktail sticks.
  6. Place on a baking tray and bake for 40 minutes.  Check the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 F.
