Pork Tenderloins

What are your best recipes for pork tenderloins?  We have two in the freezer.  It would be nice to use at least two styles.  We are only two, so MrP could cut them up and make more than two styles and freeze leftovers.

Recently, I marinated pork tender loin in lots of garlic, lemon juice , olive oil and Greek oregano and grilled it.  That was excellent.  I've also made a gluten-free sweet and sour pork using tenderloin, also quite good.

I would prefer low-sodium suggestions since I am in a cast and excess sodium causes swelling, well, sorry for TMI.

Re: Pork Tenderloins

it makes pretty good souvlaki cut into chunks and marinated pretty much like what you described above and skewered.  served in a pita with some tzatziki and a side horiatiki or greek salad.  very tasty.

other option is to  season and brown off in a heavy bottom pan , pull off to side and put some fingerling potatoes that have been par cooked and cut in half on the bottom of the pan  with whatever herbs and spicing  you like.  We use garlic, rosemary maybe some golden  thyme, lay the tenderloin on top and finish cooking in a hot oven til the pots colour up and the tenderloin is cooked though.     with a green salad it is a fast good meal.

Re: Pork Tenderloins

My absolute favorite is so easy and delicious. I can't take credit for it, I got the recipe from Whitney Miller's "Modern Hospitality".  Take bacon and line them up side by side, slightly overlapping until you get the width of your tenderloin.  Roll the tenderloin in the bacon and put the 'seam' side down in the baking dish.  Bake at 350 about 20 minutes or so.  In a sauce pan make a simple cranberry sauce. This is my version as it's easy as can be.  I use about 1/2 cup orange juice and 1 cup whole cranberries and cook about 15 minutes or so. Take an immersion blender and puree the sauce.  Coat the tenderloin with the sauce and bake at least another 10 minutes. Of course, it depends on the size,it could take longer. I buy the smallest I can find as I am just feeding myself. 

The cranberry sauce in the book adds sugar and doesn't use the juice.

Re: Pork Tenderloins

I have nt done this for a while as I used t cook the pork fillets like this when my family were younger,
I used to cut the pork fillet into disks , flatten them with the flat side of the meat mallet and then marinade the flattened disks of meat in all sorts of different marinades.
I then used to cook these on the griddle .
They did not really need flattening as the meat was very soft but it made them cook super fast and theis was always a consideration with having 4 small hungry mouths to feed and various activities that I had to take then to .

I also seem to remember rolling the flattened disks around a precooked filling , the cooking them and serving them with a sauce.
..cant remember now what it was I used to cook and fill them with !

Re: Pork Tenderloins

Funny is that we only buy it when in England where it is sold very cheap.
Depends on its size for the cooking times, lets say that its cooked when still a little rose inside...(our taste).

Seized in a little oil and butter on all sides. Add sliced shallots and onions and 3 big spoons of Dijon mustard and at the end just before serving 2 big spoons of cream  yummy then sliced and served with boiled or baked potatoes to soak the sauce thumbsup

This site has many other recipes: http://southernfood.about.com/cs/porkte … erloin.htm

Next time i want to try the peach sauce.

Re: Pork Tenderloins

These all sound delicious!  I will have to refer back to this thread as I now have another one in the freezer.

This worked very well with a gluten-free dough, but would be simpler with store-bought puff pastry.  Very juicy and loaded with flavor.

Open the tenderloin like a book with a knife so it is fairly flat and even. Fill with spinach and cheese or shallots and mushrooms or apples and dried fruits or whatever you prefer, place over overlapping layers of prosciutto slices and pastry - puff pastry or a gluten free short crust in my case.  Roll up and bake until the crust is golden and meat is cooked through in a medium oven.  Cooking time varies, but there's no problem cooking this well as it stays very juicy.
