This lean, quick-cooking cut is the chicken breast of the pork world. It stands up to bold flavors and is so versatile it can move from down-home casual to elegant to global, as our collection of recipes shows. At the grocery store, steer clear of pre-marinated tenderloins or ones injected with solution to “enhance juiciness.” Those products are typically loaded with sodium. Instead, add your own seasonings and stay in control of the flavor and salt.
Perfect Pork Tenderloin
Think of this refreshing salad as a deconstructed spring roll: cool rice noodles, crisp vegetables, and a sweet-and-spicy vinaigrette instead of a dipping sauce. Top it all off with savory stir-fried pork. Look for brown rice noodles on the Asian foods aisle of your supermarket or in your local Asian market. We love that they offer up whole-grain goodness, and, once cooked, they’re pretty much indistinguishable from white rice noodles. If you're unfamiliar with fish sauce, you'll find it on the Asian foods aisle, too. We find it to be indispensable in the kitchen, lending savory depth to all kinds of dishes; try a splash in meatloaf or burgers; guacamole; meat or chicken marinades; or spaghetti sauce.
