Ingredients
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup popped amaranth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Pork tenderloin
  • Fresh ground amaranth flour
  • Eggs
  • Buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients, except for popped amaranth, in food processor and process until texture is a fine powder. Stir in popped amaranth.
  2. To bread pork, toss or roll pieces in flour, then beaten eggs with buttermilk, and then in the breading. Do not use all of the breading at once, so that if all doesn't get used, not all will be lost. Take out a portion and add to it as needed.
  3. Pan fry in olive oil until golden brown and cooked through. About 2 minutes per side.
