This pork tenderloin with mushroom gravy is, hands down, my favorite Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Fuel Pull dinner. It tastes like something you’d enjoy at a wedding or restaurant. Your family will never believe this high-protein main dish is low in both fat and carbs!
To keep this meal a Fuel Pull, you could serve it with steamed, non-starchy vegetables, such as green beans or broccoli. Or, if you’d like an S meal, you could coat those non-starchy vegetables in a buttery, cheesy sauce. For an E meal, serve the pork tenderloin with mushroom gravy over brown rice and pair with a side of carrots or a sweet potato.
The no-fail trick to keeping lean meats tender and juicy without brining or coating in additional fat, is to cook your meat on stoneware! I’ve been doing this for the last nine years with the same stone bar pan (stone and cast iron are the only types of kitchenware that get better with age, so they’re an excellent investment!) and chicken breasts and tenderloin turn out succulent every time.
The whole dish is made without any special ingredients, using things you probably already have on hand (except for the tenderloin, perhaps):
- dried thyme
- sea salt
- ground pepper
- chicken broth
- fresh parsley (or use 1 Tbsp of dried parsley flakes instead)
- xanthum gum
Hands down, this is my favorite Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Fuel Pull main dish. A flavorful mushroom sauce dresses up a juicy tenderloin. Serve with a non-starchy vegetable (like green beans) to keep in Fuel Pull mode, or serve with a sweet potato for an E.

I finally got around to trying this. Yum!
I’m thankful I met you in honeschool/Christian blog land, and I’m also living your recipes. They make THM much more doable in my house.
Thank, Amy! We’ve been connected for quite a while now. I hope you’re well! Glad the recipes are enjoyed.
What stoneware do you use?
Them: Use stoneware…
Them: …or foil…
Worked out great! My wife and I are new to THM, and after a week we’re already down SEVERAL lbs. and we’re feeling GREAT!
Today, my wife had some time together with friends, and on her way out the door she says, “Honey, could you do something with that pork loin for lunch?” (I am quite handy in the kitchen, but this was my first on-purpose THM meal.) “Sure thing, babe!” Your’s was the first recipe I saw, and it was sent from Heaven.
Easy! Went well! Had to go buy some Xantham Gum…after learning what it was! Wife loved it! Daddy wins!!!! Woo-hoo!!!
Another crisis averted.
I’m not experienced with cooking with mushrooms. Are there any mushrooms other than cremini that would work? Are there any types of mushrooms that would not work and should be voided?
You can use any type of mushrooms you find in the grocery store for this. Cremini mushrooms just happen to be my favorite. 🙂
This was delicious! Even the leftovers were great.
My husband does not like “those thickeners” (xanthan gum and glucomannan) and can detect them in any recipe. Could any other thickener work? Oat flour? Pureed cauliflower? This recipe looks SO good, and I would love to try it.
Made this tonight & it was a hit! Thanks for great recipe!
This is an easy yet fabulous recipe. It will be my go to in the future. The first time I’ve made gravy that didn’t taste like bad tap water. So much flavour! Thank you!
