(gentle guitar strumming) – We all love comfort food, and today we’re gonna show you how to make a recipe that screams comfort. This recipe is not only full of flavor, but it can be adapted to
the puree or blended foods, soft foods and beyond once
you reach stabilization. – You wanna remember to slow down, chop everything to the size
of the tip of your finger, and use some broth or light
mayo to soften your meats. Also remember to take small bites, and chew your food to
baby food consistency. If you’re using this
recipe for a puree meal, blend everything to make sure there’s no lumps or chunks in your meal. – Being on a bariatric diet
can be delicious. – [Narrator] Start by
preheating your oven to 350. Coat a baking pan
with non-stick cooking spray, and place the one pound tenderloin
in the pan. We want to use the tenderloin cut
of the pork, as it is a lean and tender cut of meat, so it is usually easy to tolerate. In a small bowl,
combine two cloves of garlic, minced, a 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, one tablespoon fresh grated ginger, or if you don’t have fresh,
two teaspoons of dried ginger. Mix well and rub the top of the tenderloin
with the mixture. Cut one large onion into 1/2 inch wedges. Peel and core two Granny Smith apples, and cut into 1/2 inch wedges. Surround the tenderloin with alternating wedges of onion and apple. Pour a 1/2 cup of water
over the apples and onion only. In a small bowl, combine
1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon with two packets of artificial sweetener. Sprinkle generously
over the apples and onion, being careful to avoid the meat. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes to brown the meat. Let the meat rest for a few minutes. Slice meat thinly
and serve alongside apples and onions. A serving size should equal
two to three ounces of meat, and a 1/4 cup of the apples and onion. For the blended diet, you can blend meat and apple
and onion mixture separately, or blend them together for added flavor. Whatever works for you, just make sure they are blended to stage two baby food consistency.
