Easy and Elegant Pork

I decided recently, that aside from bacon, pork is not my favourite. It's the meat I cook the least, and when I do cook pork, I prefer it breaded or pulled. We rarely eat leftover pork, but the dogs have been more than happy to make sure it doesn't go to waste.

I got some pork at Costco. I can't tell you what the cut is because I separated the pieces and froze them individually, and now can't remember what the package said. But I usually use pork tenderloin for this. This recipe is so easy, and you can also use chicken instead. The pork I used for this, is the same cut I used to make Indonesian Pork, which also turned out to be pretty tasty.

Here's the pork ready to go into the oven.

Easy and Elegant Pork
Adapted from
Makes 6 servings

2 lbs pork tenderloin
2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/3 cup olive oil

Prehead the oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with foil.

Combine the breadcrumbs and oil well. I use a little less oil than the recipe calls for but the mixture is still moist enough.

Press the breadcrumb mixture all around the pork and place on the prepared pan. You can sprinkle any extra breadcrumbs on the top if you like.

Bake for about 35 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Easy enough?
