PORK TENDERLOIN Pork is healthy meat and a very safe one as well! Free from the old stigmas that came with eating Pork and the rules to cook it to death, the Pork of today can be eaten medium rare while it is moist and tender! The sauce that accents the natural sweetness of Pork will create a meal that is remembered and soon to be a favorite. I hope you find this recipe in this same light!
