Diabetic, Pork

Pork with Garlic Cream Sauce


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted, divided
  • 1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
  • 1/3 cup 1% milk
  • 3 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives


Cut pork into 1” slices; flatten to 1/2” thickness. Place in a 15”x10”x1” baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Brush oil over all sides of pork; sprinkle with half of the sesame seeds. Broil 4-6” from the heat for 3-5 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, saute garlic in butter for 1 minute. Stir in milk and cream cheese. Reduce heat; cook and stir until blended and smooth. Stir in chives. Serve with pork.
