Pork tenderloin is perfect for casual entertaining. It is very lean, extremely tender and versatile. It can be used in most recipes calling for boneless skinless chicken breasts.
Certain flavors go extremely well with pork. So if you want to pair pork chops or a roast with the perfect ingredients, try these suggestions: thyme, sage, bay leaves, garlic, mustard, apples, prunes, pineapple and sauerkraut.
