WhistleStop Pork Tenderloin



Pork tenderloin is the center cut of the pork loin. It is the most tender portion of meat and a leaner cut at that. 'The other white meat' Because of it's mildness it can be marinated with so many new flavors... spice it up or smother it with sauce.
It is a favorite at this house... always good and easy to prepare.
WhistleStop Pork Tenderloin
1 pound pork tenderloin
1/2 cup marinade
1 tbs fresh rosemary
3 cloves garlic
olive oil
In a large zip-loc bag, pour 1/2 cup WhistleStop marinade, rosemary and garlic. Allow pork to marinate for at least 1 hour. In a skillet pour two tablespoons of olive oil and heat. Brown tenderloin turning to each side. Wrap in foil and put into the oven at 375°. Cook with meat thermometer to a temperature of 150°, about 25 minutes. Allow the meat to sit and rest 10-15 minutes before slicing into medallions. While meat is cooking, boil marinade in the skillet to reduce to a thickened glaze. Serve over wild rice.
You will see lots of tenderloin recipes here...it is always quick and easy. Good enough for family and fancy enough for company!
Y'all enjoy!

Albeit, no the biggest fan of pork, my husband loves it. So I will have to remember this recipe for him. Looks good.

Pork loin...one of my favorite things to eat. I think I'll stop by your shop and pick up some of that marinade. What a great sounding pork dish!
