By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Roasted Lemon Pepper Pork Tenderloin with Cornbread Stuffing might be just the Southern recipe you are searching for. This recipe makes 4 servings with 412 calories, 41g of protein, and 16g of fat each. For $2.23 per serving, this recipe covers 33% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. Thanksgiving will be even more special with this recipe. 65 people have made this recipe and would make it again. A few people really liked this main course. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you have salt and pepper, chicken broth, pork tenderloin, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the salt and pepper you could follow this main course with the Dr. Pepper Cake with Flour Cooked Frosting as a dessert. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 90%. This score is tremendous. Try Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Sage Cornbread Crust, Grilled Lemon-Pepper Pork Tenderloin, and Pork Tenderloin Stuffed with Spinach, Roasted Bell Pepper, Mushroom, and Parmesan for similar recipes.

Malbec, Pinot Noir, and Sangiovese are my top picks for Pork Tenderloin. Pinot noir's light body is great for lean cuts, medium bodied sangiovese complement meaty sauces, stews, and other multi-ingredient dishes, and full-bodied tannic malbec pairs with fatty cuts and barbecue. The Ernesto Catena Selections Padrillos Malbec with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 10 dollars per bottle.

Ernesto Catena Selections Padrillos Malbec

Ripe, concentrated dark fruit aromas with hints of chocolate, black cherry and red currant fruit flavors with notes of sweet spices, soft, supple tannins and balanced bright acidity.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your cornbread (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, pasture raised pork to avoid antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified feed. It is better for your health, for the animals, and for the planet. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating vegetarian meals more often during the week so you can splurge on better meat on the weekends.

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
