I’m very blessed to live close to my family, so that means a combination of many planned and impromptu gatherings over meal time. One of my favored crowd pleasers is pork tenderloin.
Pork tenderloin is my favorite cut of meat because it is so tender, and it is the leanest cut of pork! I also like that it cooks quickly in the oven with no fuss.
I like this Kraft cheese and breadcrumb mix that comes in a zipper bag that makes mixing and applying the seasonings very easy. Of course you pay a little more for the convenience of having everything in one package. If you prefer to save money you can buy the toppings and mix them on your own.
I hosted a birthday party for my mom, so we needed three tenderloins. One pork tenderloin would’ve cooked in about 35 minutes, but making three at once took closer to an hour.
I used an instant read meat thermometer and checked the tenderloins at 50 minutes. The thermometer read right around 130 degrees, so I knew that they needed more time to cook. They had reached the appropriate internal temperature of 145 degrees at an hour, so I removed them from the heat and let them rest for three minutes before slicing.
This was the featured meat at our feast.
And I’m grateful that my sister-in-law brought some of this!
My mom brought fresh fruits and vegetables and we had a well-rounded meal!
