Thanks to the wonderful people at America’s Test Kitchen, I learned how to make this fabulous Pork Tenderloin for dinner last night. (And for a yummy leftover snack today!) Thanks ATK for the lesson-it’s a delicious Dukan Diet Recipe for everyone. It’s super lean and if you cook it correctly, it’s really moist and delicious. I’ve done many that have come out over cooked and dry but this one was perfect!!
BROILED PORK TENDERLOIN
1 lb pork tenderloin
1/2 t kosher salt
1 t olive oil
1 t baking soda
salt and pepper
1 (13 by 9-inch) disposable aluminum roasting pan
1. Adjust oven rack 4 to 5 inches from broiler element and heat oven to 325 degrees. Fold thin tip of each tenderloin under about 2 inches to create uniformly shaped roast. Tie tenderloins crosswise with kitchen twine at 2-inch intervals, making sure folded tip is secured underneath. Trim excess twine close to meat to prevent it from scorching under broiler.
2. Mix salt, oil, and pepper in small bowl until salt is evenly coated with oil. Add baking soda and stir until well combined. Rub mixture evenly over pork. Place tenderloins in disposable pan, evenly spaced between sides of pan and each other.
3. Turn oven to broil. Immediately place meat in oven and broil tenderloins for 5 minutes. Flip tenderloins and continue to broil until golden brown and meat registers 125 to 130 degrees, 8 to 14 minutes (I only made one and it took 12 minutes). Remove disposable pan from oven, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. Remove twine, slice tenderloins into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and serve.
