Paprika Pork Tenderloin

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth or use homemade
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Place tenderloin in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients (broth through black pepper); pour mixture over pork. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Shred pork with two forks and continue to cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes (to absorb juices).
  • LC SERVING SUGGESTION: Roll pork mixture in large Romaine lettuce leaves. Add a big bowl of broccoli slaw (use a ready-made mix and toss with mayo and a little rice vinegar).


SERVING SUGGESTION: Instead of lettuce leaves, roll pork mixture in warmed whole wheat flour tortillas. Add buttered corn on the cob.
KOSHER: Use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of pork.
GLUTEN FREE: Make sure broth and salsa are gluten free.
