Almond-Crusted Pork with Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce

By Logo inline

Sliced almonds add a delectable, almost-like-fried-chicken crunch to the breading for these tender pieces of pork. We slice the pork thinly to keep the cooking time quick. The resulting pork “fingers” are great dipped in this surprisingly simple, delicious honey, soy and mustard sauce.

Ingredients
  • Total Time: 40 minutes

  • 1 cup coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1 large egg white, beaten

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices

  • Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions
  1. 4 servings

  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and coat it with cooking spray.

  3. Place breadcrumbs, almonds, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a food processor; pulse until the almonds are coarsely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish.

  4. Place egg white in another shallow dish. Dip both sides of each pork slice in egg white, then evenly coat with the almond mixture. (Discard any remaining egg white and almond mixture.) Place the pork on the prepared rack and coat on both sides with cooking spray.

  5. Bake the pork until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 16 to 18 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, whisk honey, soy sauce and mustard in a small bowl. Serve the pork with the honey-mustard sauce.
