“Greek” Pork Loin Recipe

Photo Source: Andrea Knight mediumandreaknight.com

Pork is often referred to as the “other white meat”. Pork can serve as a good source of protein and is often a cheaper alternative to chicken breasts. This is a recipe I invented just based off of an idea. I thought I would pass it along to those interested in gluten free, keto friendly recipes.

  • 1 pork loin
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic
  • Pinch Onion powder
  • Dash Oregano
  • Dash Dill
  • Dash Nutmeg
  • Sprinkle Parsley
  • Squirt of Lemon
  • Dash of Salt and pepper

Cook on medium heat. Season your fry pan with olive oil and spices (not lemon). Place your pork loin in the pan on top of the spices and fry for about 8 minutes or until browned on the underside. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes until browned on the second side. I usually adjust the seasons before placing the pork loin back down when flipping so both sides are nicely seasoned. Sprinkle on some lemon, maybe 3-4 drops. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Recipe: Spanakopita

I’ve been making spanakopita for years. The crusty filo dough is the perfect delivery system for this Greek spinach and cheese mixture. You can also ditch the filo and warm up the spinach and cheese mixture into rolled zucchini strips, eggplant or use as a side dish to any meal. spanakopita

Ingredients

1/2 cup ricotta

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 10oz package of chopped spinach

1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped fine

1/2 sauteed onion in olive oil

1 egg

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp dill

2 tbsp olive oil

1 package filo dough (found in frozen dessert section at your grocery store)

Directions

Mix all ingredients except the filo dough and the olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of salt over mixture. Fold a filo dough sheet in half length wise. Put a couple tablespoons of the mixture at the top of the filo dough about 1.5 inches from the top. Fold the mixture in the filo dough into triangles as shown in the pictures above. Brush olive oil all over your filo triangle and put on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.

An alternative would be to put filo dough at the bottom of a 8″x8″ square pan and at the top, brushing olive oil over each filo dough sheet. Bake for 40 minutes 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
