Top Tips for Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin:

  • What temperature should pork be cooked to?
    Use a thermometer in the thickest part of your chop, and cook to 145, and rest for 3 mins after cooking. Use a high quality thermometer to check temperature. Accurately measuring this, ensures fully cooked but not OVER cooked pork.
  • Change out the seasoning for Italian seasoning, or Tuscan Seasoning
  • Choose pork tenderloin at the grocery store that is not pre-marinated. Season your own!
  • Pork tenderloin goes on sale regularly at grocery stores! A good price is around $5.99-$7.00 per pound.
