Balsamic roasted pork Lion

 I feel like so many of us my self included when we think of healthy meats we think only fish or poultry... but there are so many lean cuts of pork.  This pork tenderloin in one 4 oz serving has only 154 calories, 6 grams of fa,t and 23 grams of protein.   Sounds good to me!!  It was so tender and juicy as well!   I served this pork lion along side raviolis at my Christmas dinner it was so effortless, but everyone really enjoyed it.

  • 2 tablespoons steak seasoning rub
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast


  1. Dissolve steak seasoning in balsamic vinegar, then stir in olive oil. Place pork into a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade overtop. Squeeze out air and seal bag; marinate 2 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place pork into a glass baking dish along with marinade. Bake in preheated oven, basting occasionally until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 1 hour. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.   One the package of the roast it said 22-25 minutes per pound so figure your time accordingly.
  I like to slice mine thin and on a bias it help with the grain of the meat and having the most tender slice.

  1. You are so right. Whenever I'm trying to make a 'healthy' meal I always think of using chicken or fish. I've never made a pork loin. I'll have to give it a shot! : )
