Almond Crusted Pork with Peanut Sauce peanut butter main course

Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite cuts of meat. It’s tender, lean and extremely versatile. Whether you grill it covered with a spice mixture, slow cook it in BBQ sauce or bake it in a sweet glaze, it always comes out tender and delicious. Since a pork tenderloin goes so well with everything, I figured there’s no reason it shouldn’t be fantastic with peanut butter. I found the pork recipe in a magazine but paired it with a peanut sauce to make an unbeatable meal. These are better than any chicken fingers I’ve ever had!

Ingredients:Almond Crusted Pork with Peanut Sauce peanut butter main course Print Almond Crusted Pork with Peanut Sauce peanut butter main course Save

Pork Medallions
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices
1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs (or 3 slices whole wheat sandwich bread)
1 large egg white (or 2T egg substitute), beaten
1/2 cup almonds
1t garlic powder
1/2t kosher salt
1/4t ground pepper

Peanut Sauce
See recipe for Peanut Dipping Sauce or Fast Peanut Sauce – both are excellent.


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and coat it with cooking spray.

2. If you are making your own bread crumbs, tear the 3 slices of bread into a food processor and pulse until broken into small crumbs. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes, until browned. Then place breadcrumbs, almonds, garlic powder, salt and pepper in the food processor and pulse until the almonds are coarsely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish.

3. Place egg white in another shallow dish. Dip both sides of each pork slice in egg , then dip and coat into the almond mixture, then place the pork on the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 16 to 18 minutes.

    nick! this looks delicious. i’m so happy i stumbled upon your blog – my boyfriend is also a peanut butter boy. amazing how his entire approach to health was transformed by that one simple substance. i was wondering – have you ever tried kraft all natural pb? they only have it in canada. i’m a huge fan! as an american that lives in canada, every time i head back to the US i have to bring along my canadian pb.

      Same with me – peanut butter changed the way I looked at health (and the world). I have heard of Kraft peanut butter in Canada but never had it, I’ll have to drive across the border and give it a shot. But there’s plenty of good peanut butter in America to satisfy your craving!

    So I didn’t eat the pb&j doughnut, but I did eat a Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookie right before the race and it was awesome! Quite possibly the reason I kicked butt on the bike, lol! Way to go PB!

      There you go! Perhaps donut calories aren’t the best option but peanut butter definitely is =)
