Creamy Pork Tenderloin

Ahhh doesn't that title just make you wan't to keep reading. Just like the one of the essential laws of cooking is that bacon makes everything better, and should be defined as a the perfect spice, cream sauce especially including mushrooms is a way to make a simple dish taste like something really fancy. The great great thing is that even though the conventional wisdom food police (impressive name) would probably knock down your door for making cream sauce they will have no jurisdiction in the Paleo world when the heavy cream is replaced by coconut milk.

Well that was quite an introduction to the dish. This is originally from but since my mom used to serve pork tenderloin in creamy mushroom sauce I decided to go in that direction instead. Instead of adding only chicken broth to the sauce I added 1 cup of chicken broth and let that simmer for 5 minutes and then I added app. 1/2 cup of coconut milk to the sauce. Then I let it simmer another 10 minutes. So so delicious, and definitely a dish I would serve to impress my friends when they come for dinner...

You can always make more sauce by upping the broth or the coconut milk and then perhaps serve it with cauliflower rice. Also if you want a thicker sauce add some arrowroot as a thickener.

So after a long period of not feeling great I'm trying to get back on track with my workouts. So tonight I went for a fartleg run of 9.5km run. It is getting really really cold and dark outside which makes it a bit more difficult to get out from under the covers, but once I'm outside I absolutely love running in the cold. The air is so much fresher and my entire body seem to function better when it's close to zero degrees Celsius outside. Please find me a place to live where it is only cold when I have to go running - the rest of the time 20-25 degrees would be highly appreciated. So todays run was great up until the point where I tripped over an invisible stone on the ground and crashed onto the pavement. Now 30 minutes later (had to finish the planned run of course) I have to most beautifully colored knee to show for it - very much looking forward to waring shorts to CrossFit tomorrow evening - totally bad ass!!!


  1. That looks great. Sorry to hear about your knee though...hope it heals up quickly for ya
