Ingredients

  • 1.25-1.5 lb pork tenderloin Whatever is available in this range is fine, cook time might vary based on the size of your tenderloin
  • 1/3 cup pitted dates softened*
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp brown mustard
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • sea salt to sprinkle on meat
  • 6-8 slices of bacon

Instructions

  1. Cut off the silver skin from your tenderloin and remove any excess fat. Sprinkle it with salt all over and set it in 7 quart crock pot (I use slow cooker liners)
  2. To make the sauce, a food processor or high speed blender will work best. Place the softened dates and water in the food processor and process on high until a paste forms. Add the coconut aminos, mustard, smoked paprika, onion powder and black pepper and pulse until combined.
  3. Pour half of the sauce over the meat and turn to cover the bottom as well. Lay the half strips of bacon over the top of the pork to cover (tuck gently underneath if there’s extra), then pour remaining sauce over the top and brush to evenly coat.
  4. Cook in crockpot on high for 4-6 hours. When done put in the oven on broil to crisp the top. Or cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.

Hi, my name is Tracy Baker. I am one of the owners of SI Medical Weight Loss and I’m here with my good friend, Tammy Barber, who is also a provider for SI Medical. And we just want to talk to you about diets and food. Tammy is one of the best peopleI know at taking a recipe and making it diet friendly for us.You know, we do a low carb, high protein diet and she is able to look at a recipe and say, okay, we’re going to increase this, we don’t need this, this will add flavor… and it turns out wonderful every time. So today, she’s made a great pork tenderloin and I’m going to have her go through and tell us how to do it. Hi. This is my pork tenderloin. It’s super easy to make. It’s Whole 30 and paleo approved and the biggest thing with it is the sauce that I put on it. and it’s just dates that are pitted, it is coconut aminos, spicy brown mustard, and smoky paprika with a little bit of onion powder, and I just blend all that stuff up in my ninja bullet, but you can use any high powered blender that you have. And then I pour part of it, on the, the pork tenderloin, then I put the bacon strips around it, and I pour some more on top of it. Stick it in the oven for 45 minutes and it’s perfect every time. You can also make it in the microwave. I’m so sorry. You can also make it in the Crock-Pot. When I cook it in the Crock-Pot, I cut this in half and I actually do two of them and I prepare it the same way but in the Crock-Pot, I just cook it on high for 4 hours. Wow, and then when I’m when it’s done cooking in the crock pot,
I still transfer it to a pan that I can stick in the oven so that it crisps up the bacon because I think it adds so much more flavor to it.
Crunchy bacon, MMM! Ready to try it? I am! Gotta get the bacon. Yeah, gotta get the bacon. Tammy, that is so good! I’m so glad you like it. Thank you! Cheers! You bet. Cheers!
