Many grocery stores now carry cauliflower crumbles which work great in this recipe. I used a whole cauliflower head and crumbled using a food processor. Just be sure to watch the particle size as you are processing- it is very easy to overprocess the cauliflower and you end up with a much finer particle size. Also, you may use your favorite salsa in this recipe- most are about 2gm carb per 2 tablespoon serving size.
Pork Tenderloin with Spanish Cauliflower Rice
One skillet low carb Spanish rice topped with pork tenderloin and melted cheese.
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 pound pork tenderloin
- 1 head cauliflower
- 1 16 oz. salsa
- 1/2 cup cheese
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in large skillet and brown tenderloin in batches (avoid crowding). Set tenderloin aside.
Clean and coarsely chop cauliflower. Add to food processor and process until rice-sized pieces are formed (check particle size and avoid over-processing.)
Heat 2 tsp oil in a non-stick skillet and add cauliflower. Stir fry 2-3 minutes until tender. Add salsa to skillet and bring to a simmer. Top with tenderloin then sprinkle with cheese, as desired.
