  • I also slice it up, and batter and fry it. Serve it with hot biscuits, gravy and potatoes. This is always a hit, lol.

    When I cook it on the grill, I marinate it in steak seasoning and worchestshire sauce for several hours and then grill it.

  • I leave it whole.. cut 2-3 slits vertically down the middle (depending on the size) and stuff the wholes with cloves of garlic and the greens from green onions.. I season it with seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder--cover it with butter and cook it in the oven! Its delicious!! =)

  • I put mine in the crock pot with some onions, potatoes, and carrots. I season the meat with salt, onion powder, pepper, and a little season salt. And I pour in one cup of water. The meat comes out so juicy and tender.

  • Just the tenderloin? I do a quick rub of olive oil and then a dry herb/seasoning mix. Sometimes it's a rosemary/thyme/sage mix or sometimes it's just a quick shake of Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning.

    I preheat the oven to 400, then preheat an oven-proof pan (not non-stick!) on the stove over high heat. Put the tenderloin in the pan to sear it on all sides, then into the oven for about 15 minutes until the internal temp is 160F.

    Take it out, let it rest for about 10 minutes, then slice. If I'm lucky and didn't burn the seasoning mix while it was on the stove, I make a quick pan sauce, then serve with mashed potatoes and veg.

  • Keep in mind that the tenderloin is a long, lean, thin piece of meat, as opposed to a whole pork loin, which is more of a roast.

    And I forgot to add that before I season the meat, I take off the sliverskin, which is an inedible bit of tendon.

  • I have several recipes for pork tenderloin, and I just happen to be making one today.... I threw it in the crock pot and sprinkles with garlic and salt, added sauerkraut, chopped onion, apple juice and apple sauce and a little brown sugar. I also threw in some dried cranberries, I normally add chopped apple but realized too late that I don't have any. I'll serve that tonight with roasted broccoli.

  • I only do it in the crock pot. Always with some liquid in the bottom. Never with veggies. Always seasoned. Sometimes we'll slice it up to eat with mashed potatoes etc, sometimes we'll cook it extra long and shred & bbq it for sandwiches.
