The tenderloin comes from the full pork loin. The tenderloin is one of the most tender cuts of pork. Typically, pork tenderloin weighs between ¾ and ½ pounds.

Pork tenderloin makes an elegant entree for a small dinner party but also can be roasted or grilled whole for a quick weeknight dinner. When sliced crosswise (like a loaf of French bread), the resulting medallions also may be sauteed.

Pork tenderloin has a mild flavor, so it’s best when prepared with an added spice rub, marinade, stuffing or flavorful sauce. To keep the tenderloin juicy, cook to an internal temperature of 145/160.
