What Is Pork Tenderloin?
Pork tenderloin is a lengthy piece of pork meat. It is often compared to pork loin, but there are differences between these two cuts of meat. Pork tenderloin is boneless, long, and thin, making it even easier to prepare than some other pork cuts.
Prepare the Apple Barbecue Pork Tenderloin for your family with the following ingredients:
- Pork Tenderloin. You will need at least five pounds of pork tenderloin when following this recipe.
- Applesauce. Use two cups of your favorite applesauce for this recipe. You can make your own using my applesauce recipe.
- Barbecue Sauce. Add barbecue sauce over your pork with the applesauce for added flavor.
- Dried Minced Onion. Sprinkle a bit of dried minced onion over your meat.
With just four ingredients, you can make the most tender and flavorful pork tenderloin you have ever tried.
