CUT

Tenderloin

The tenderloin (or fillet) is a long, thin piece of muscle found on the inside of the ribcage and is part of the loin cut. It’s a prized cut, super tender and low-fat, and can be cooked whole or cut into small medallions or butterflied and pan fried quickly for a juicy result.

Pork tenderloin is the leanest of all cuts, so it’s the healthiest choice. Marinate or tenderise the fillet, then cook it quickly at a high temperature until slightly blushing pink in the middle for extra-juicy results.
