Cook It Up!
Combine Island Fresh Pineapple ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
Note: The pineapple salsa is extra tasty if made 30-60 minutes ahead so that the fresh flavors can meld!
Heat skillet, over MEDIUM-HIGH for 1 minute with 1 tablespoon of your preferred cooking oil.
Prepare Hawaiian BBQ Pork Tenderloins. Break pork medallions apart by massaging pork in pouch before opening. Cut open pouch, drain pork broth, and discard. Blot pork medallions with a paper towel.
Add pork to hot skillet. Separate pork medallions with tongs and heat for 1-2 minutes on each side until lightly browned.
Add Kevin’s Hawaiian BBQ-Inspired Sauce. Reduce heat to LOW, and simmer 30 seconds, flipping pork to coat with sauce.
To Serve: Arrange Hawaiian BBQ-Inspired Pork Medallions on a platter, and top with Island Fresh Pineapple Salsa. Garnish with microgreens.
Prep Tip: In a hurry? In the produce department, buy prepared fresh pineapple (chopped, slices or spears) for a speedier prep time. Look for a single combo tub of onion, red and green pepper! Other prep helpers are chopped scallions and cilantro!
Pineapple Nutrition: Pineapple is one of the healthiest fruits even though it is mid to high on the glycemic index, 59 ± 8. Raw pineapple has 11.2 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. Pineapple is very rich in vitamin C and manganese, and serves to strengthen the immune system and absorption of iron. Pineapple is loaded with antioxidants, phenolic acid, and the enzyme bromelain.
Keto Life Style: Pineapple is not ketogenic and should be limited for those on a strict Keto diet. A way to do this is to substitute the pineapple with a combination watermelon or peaches, along with jicama, cucumbers, and avocados.
