Pork tenderloin is a common entree in our home as my husband prefers lean meat. In the “old days” I used to cover it with breadcrumbs or Panko before roasting, but that isn't terribly low carb. So I decided to try pork rind crumbs as an alternative coating. Double the pork flavor!!
I'm rather addicted to these seasoned pork rind crumbs – they're convenient and actually good value for money when you realize how much you're getting. However, you could of course make your own from whole pork rinds, by putting a handful into a clear zipper bag and either pounding at them with a meat tenderizer or breaking them up with your fingers. You can buy bags of pork rinds (also known as pork skins or chicharrones) in the chips aisle of most supermarkets – although I have also found some yummy ones from Amazon that you cook in the microwave for a super fresh taste.
How to Make Pork Rind Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Place the tenderloin on a baking tray (I use this quarter sheet one that comes with a silicone mat). Spread some Dijon mustard over the pork tenderloin – remember not to “double dip” the spoon after it has touched the meat!
Cover the mustard with the pork rind crumbs.
Roast in a preheated 375F oven for 35-40 minutes (depending on size – or until it has reached an internal temperature of at least 160F – I recommend using a probe thermometer). Let the pork rest for five minutes, then carve into slices.
The pork rind crust helps to keep the meat super moist – and it's all so easy!
