Island Pork Tenderloin

Kyla Stuhlmiller


This recipe was something my husband and I were introduced to through a workout program that we started. We were skeptical that anything "healthy" in our diet book could possibly taste good, but we were blown away! This is so flavorful and unique that we fell in love with it right away! If you are looking for something to get you out of a rut this is a good one to try! It's got a little bit of all the flavor spectrums!
