Pork tenderloin is one of those often overlooked lean protein sources. Even as someone who pretty much thinks about food all day, for some reason I never think to plan a meal around it. But with around 160 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving, it’s a good option. In this fall recipe, the pork is cooked low and slow until it becomes fall apart tender. It is flavored with a great combination of balsamic, honey, and rosemary as well as some pears for extra flavor. One quick note, if you want your pears to “hold up” more, add them in the last 30 minutes of cooking. Also if you want a glaze for the pork, take the cooking liquid and reduce it in a sauce pan before serving.
