Pork tenderloin is a wonderful cut of meat. It's boneless, lean, and can be transformed into many recipes using just about every ingredient in the pantry or fridge. It grills beautifully, can be roasted, or quickly pan fried. You can find many versions already marinated, prepackaged in the supermarket, but it's fun to buy plain tenderloin and marinate it yourself. Just be sure not to overcook this tender meat. Pork can be cooked to medium, or 155 degrees F, and be perfectly safe. Just slightly pink in the middle makes the meat very juicy and fork-tender. Enjoy these easy recipes!
