Pork tenderloin is one of our favorite cuts for making a variety of delicious meals. These recipes turn pork tenderloin into everything from spicy Pork Tenderloin Biscuits with Gochujang Mayo to a bacon-wrapped delight in the Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Strawberries. If you prefer your pork tenderloin on the sweet side, you'll love our Grilled Pork-and-Peach Salad with Honey-Mustard Dressing, or the Plum Pork Tenderloin. For a true taste of the South, you can't beat the crunch of bacon on a pork tenderloin cutlet, or grilled pork tenderloin and squash, and you'll find recipes for both here. So carve up one of our favorite Southern treats, and enjoy the flavors of pork tenderloin in any of these wonderful recipes.
