My better half came back from Wally this morning. She proudly announced she bought a pork tenderlion she wanted me to fix for dinner.
Car full of stuff as usual, just threw it in the fridge figgerin I would get back to it later.
It is from Tyson. First warning to me.
Sure enough it is enhanced and will need a little more heat.
Looked a little like a tenderloin, but not quite? Shurr Nuff? Closer look at the label says "Pork Loin". Cut and packaged to look almost like a tenderloin at first glance.
I won't tell you how I will cook this tonight. I will never recommend anyone cook it like I will?
Package says to take it to 160. Of course it is enhanced meat, not fresh and not intact muscle meat.
Reason for my rant?
Carefully look at the meat and read the labels. Our dinner will still be OK, just not as good as it could have been. And certainly not at a fair price for a piece of pork loin as compared to a tenderloin.
Good luck and good smoking.
