    A salty and cheesy combination perfect for those who want to taste a new version of cordon bleu. Cordon bleu hails from Switzerland and is typically a slice of meat that is wrapped and has a filling of cheese. You can use a different type of meat such as venison, duck and even a turkey breast to give a distinct flavor. You could also add crispy sage leaves or kale to this dish if you need to eat more greens.


    • 24 ounces pork tenderloin
    • 1-ounce grated parmesan cheese
    • 8 ounces pepperoni slices
    • 1/4 cup canola oil
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
    • salt and pepper to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Cut the pork tenderloin into 6 equal parts.
    3. Sandwich each piece between two sheets of wax paper or parchment paper.
    4. Using a rolling pin, pound each pork tenderloin until thin steaks.
    5. Season with salt and pepper.
    6. Place grated parmesan on each piece.
    7. Divide the pepperoni slices into 6 servings and carefully lay down each piece of port.
    8. Fold over the steak to enclose the cheese and the pepperoni slices.
    9. In a small bowl whisk together 1/2 cup of flour, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
    10. Place the beaten egg in another small bowl, and the panko bread crumbs in a third small bowl.
    11. Carefully pick up the stuffed pork and lightly coat each side in the flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, followed by the panko bread crumbs to coat.
    12. Once the oil is hot, place the pork in the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side to form a golden-brown crust.
    13. Place the skillet into the oven for an additional 7 to 10 minutes or until cooked through.
