Cooking & Serving
Pork tenderloin pairs beautifully with all sorts of ingredients in any season—peaches in summer, figs in winter or bacon year-round—and it can be cooked up in a flash on the stovetop or in the oven. Pork tenderloin, as its name suggests, is exceptionally silky in texture, yet lean, so it shouldn’t be overcooked. In 2011, the USDA recommended that pork be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees, 15 degrees cooler than the previous standard.
