About pork tenderloins

Pork tenderloin is tender, lean meat. When cooked right, it is juicy and delicious. However, because it is so lean and one of the smaller cuts of pork, it is easy to overcook. Pork tenderloin usually weighs a little over a pound and looks like a long cylinder. Tenderloins are typically 2 or 3 inches wide and have very little fat. 

The tenderloin comes from the loin, which sits between the shoulder and the leg and above the belly and ribs. Because these muscles are not used for movement, the meat is lean and very tender. According to the USDA, pork tenderloin has a similar nutritional profile to skinless chicken breast.

Pork tenderloin is often confused for pork loin, which is wider and has more fat. Pork loin is usually sold in 2- or 3-pound packages. You'll find tenderloin in single packages, which usually weigh about a pound, though they sometimes come in packs of two. This is helpful for the many recipes that call for two tenderloins. 

This pork is great for marinating at home, and some stores also sell pre-marinated pork tenderloin. When choosing a package, look for meat with a nice pink color. Avoid tenderloins that are pale or gray. Even though pork tenderloin is a lean meat, some marbling is fine and is an indication the pork is tender and will stay juicy when it's cooked.

On its own, pork tenderloin has a mild flavor, but it will soak up and take on flavors you create with rubs, marinades, and sauces.
