Three ways to cook pork tenderloin

Grilling

Everyone loves a nice piece of freshly grilled meat. Pork tenderloin is a great alternative to beef or chicken, in case you are looking for something different this summer. First find a marinade with flavors that you love. For best results, marinate your meat for a full 24 hours. When grilling, cooking on a top rack away from the flame for a longer time will give you a really succulent piece of meat. Depending on the thickness of the cut, this could take 20-25 minutes. Just make sure it reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees.

Roasting

Even on rainy days, when an outdoor barbecue is not an option, you can cook pork tenderloin in your kitchen. Apply a dry rub that suits your palette a half hour before baking. Cook the tenderloin on a heavy skillet turning it every couple of minutes until all sides are brown. Transfer it to the oven to finish cooking. If you use a cast iron or oven-safe skillet, you won’t need to change pans. The meat should be ready in 20 to 30 minutes. Remember to turn the meat over after 15 minutes.

Crock Pot

When cooking pork tenderloin in a crock pot, there is no need to pre-marinate your meat. Simply find a great recipe for seasonings and sauces, combine the ingredients in the crock-pot. If you are home, you may want to turn the meat once or twice during the 5-6 hour cook time, but it’s not required. If you are away at work, use a programmable crock pot to allow for a later start time.
