Air Fryer Rotisserie Pork Tenderloin – Jennifer Banz (Video)

Pork tenderloin is so easy to make, especially in the air fryer. Tender, juicy, and also keto friendly! I found this recipe from Jennifer over at https://jenniferbanz.com.  You can learn more about Jennifer here. From what I’ve read, she has followed a low carb diet for @ 10 years, and has lost @ 70 pounds!! Her recipes look healthy and delicious, and since she seems to love her Air Fryer as much as I love mine, I am sure I will find some more amazing recipes!!  I hope that you will check her out, and please tell her hello from me as well.

Let’s jump right in!!

What you’ll need:

  • 1-pound whole pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (I used olive oil, Jennifer uses Avocado)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

First, press your garlic. 

Next, in a prep bowl, combine the garlic powder, cumin, oregano, thyme, pressed garlic, oil, salt and pepper, mixing well. This is the rub for the pork.  Yum!!

Placing your tenderloin on a cutting board, spread the rub all over the meat, being sure to coat all sides.

Put the meat on the spit, and lock into place. 

Place spit into Air Fryer. Set to AIR FRY for 20-22 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145⁰F.

Be sure to use an Instant Thermometer to check the temperature!

Remove spit from Air Fryer with removal tool, and let meat rest 8-10 minutes.  Remove spit from tenderloin, slice and serve.

That’s it!  It was DELICIOUS.  Also, now that I know it’s also keto friendly, I can make this for some time (in the future) when I invite my friends over, knowing that this will be a healthy (and delicious!) addition to the menu. 

Of course, I think this will be added to my monthly menu rotation for the family.  Let me know if you make this, and please do go check out Jennifer’s recipes over at https://jenniferbanz.com. Let’s make great food together!

Garlic and Bacon Green Beans – Julia’s Album (Video)

One of the reasons I started this blog was so that I could keep track of my favorite recipes AND food bloggers in one place, and another is to show all of you how my favorite recipes can be made easier if you are using the right products.  Julia over at https://juliasalbum.com is one of my favorite food bloggers, as her recipes involve LOTS of comfort food.  You can learn more about Julia here.

This recipe, however, is not just great food, it is keto friendly!  Green beans are, apparently, lower in carbs than some vegetables, which seems to make them a perfect addition to any low carb meal.  At least, I believe it does, but I am still learning about all of this. If you know better, then by all means, enlighten me!  At any rate, I love this wonderful and easy recipe, and I think you will, too.

What you’ll need:

  • 1-pound fresh green beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4-6 garlic cloves
  • 6 slices of bacon

Instructions

Boil water in Dutch oven; add trimmed green beans and ½ teaspoon salt. Cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Drain the beans, set aside.

Cook bacon in Air Fryer for 14 minutes.  Cool, and cut into pieces. 

Peel and chop 4-6 cloves of garlic (depending on your garlic preference).

Melt butter in a large skillet on medium heat, along with olive oil. Add chopped garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds. Add in green beans and bacon pieces. Sauté on medium heat for about 1 minute, stirring to combine.

Pressure Cooker Mashed Cauliflower – Diethood (Video)

Confession:

I have always hated cauliflower. I never like the smell, the taste, etc. That all changed with this recipe, pressure cooker mashed cauliflower with garlic and chives from Katerina over at https://diethood.com/. You can learn more about Katerina here.

This month, my focus is going to be on low carb keto friendly recipes. I got this idea and encouragement for my friend Elaine (Hi Elaine!), as she and her husband have started eating low-carb. I honestly had no idea what that was about, and was a little bit afraid to check them out for fear of losing flavor. Elaine has helped to prove me wrong! The recipes I have found have been easy and really full of flavor and very delicious. Through this new research, I have discovered some really wonderful food bloggers and I will definitely go back to try new recipes from each of them. I will DEFINITELY be back to check out more from Katerina, her dessert recipes are gluten free!

This recipe was truly delicious, creamy and unbelievably like mashed potatoes. I seriously love my mashed potatoes, so it says a lot for me to give this compliment. Enough said, let’s jump right in!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 large head cauliflower, core removed and roughly cut into florets 
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh chives, plus more to garnish

Instructions

Set Quick Cooker to SEAR. Add oil to pot, heat for one minute. Smash garlic, add to pot. Saute until lightly golden on all sides, about one minute.

Add chicken broth, heat another minute.

Hit CANCEL. Place cauliflower in steam basket, and place into quick cooker. Cooker. Cover with lid, and set to CUSTOM setting, 3 minutes. Press START.

When timer is up, hit cancel. Push steam release button to Quick release pressure. Open the lid halfway and let stand 3 minutes.

Drain out all of the liquid (you can save the liquid for another use) and mash the cauliflower and garlic with a potato masher, or transfer them to a blender or food processor (I used my blender). Add in butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. If you’re using the blender, pulse until blended and creamy.

Transfer to an insulated bowl to keep warm while you’re waiting for the rest of your dinner. 

Lastly, add in Parmesan cheese and chives, and maybe another pat of butter. Stir well. 

That’s it! This recipe was so easy to make and really, really delicious! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think we’ll add this to our monthly rotation of recipes. It was that good! Please head over to visit https://diethood.com/ and check out the rest of their wonderful low carb recipes. Lots to enjoy there!

Pressure Cooker Fried Cabbage – All Day I Dream About Food (Video)

Fried cabbage with bacon, garlic, onion and red pepper flakes?? Count me in!! Such a simple and great recipe from Carolyn over at https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/. This is a gluten-free and keto friendly recipe, making it a must-have for this month’s recipes. You can learn more about Carolyn here

I just changed THREE things to the recipe, TWO by accident! I shredded the cabbage instead of chopping it, I accidentally put some of the bacon in with the cabbage during the cooking process (instead of at the end), and I doubled the amount of red pepper. I loved it this way, but I am sure if you stick with the original recipe, you will like it just as well.

I see lots of very tasty recipes on this blog, so I’ll be sure to be back and I hope that you’ll check it out as well. I LOVE that she figured how to make healthy recipes, including and especially desserts, delicious.  Let’s jump right in!

What you’ll need:

  • 6 slices bacon, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6 cups shredded or chopped green cabbage (@1 small head)
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth

Instructions

Shred or chop cabbage.

Set quick cooker to SEAR and add the bacon. Stir frequently until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon and drain, set aside.

Add onions to Bacon fat, add salt and pepper and cook about 4 minutes.

Add garlic and red pepper flakes, cook 1 minute.

Add and the cabbage, stir, then add the broth. This is where I add at the bacon by mistake, but it was a very happy accident! so, if you like, you can add half the bacon now as well. Replace the lid to the quick cooker. Set to CUSTOM, 2 minutes. When the cabbage is done, push down the steam release button to release the pressure.

Add bacon pieces back into the cabbage if you have not already done so, and stir well.

That’s it! This is an absolutely fantastic recipe that I will make time and again. Please go check out the blog over at blah oh, and let me know if you try this recipe. Let’s make great food together!
