Pork tenderloin tips

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Found a deal today on pork tenderloin tips, but one get two free, naturally, I had to buy some. I have no idea what tenderloin tips are, but I am guessing they are the ends of the tenderloin that had been cut off. Anybody have any experience smoking these? I was thinking about putting them In a smoking pan for a couple hours until they hit temp, add some sauce and foil for another couple hours. Hoping they would come out similar to country style ribs, or maybe I could shred them for sandwiches. Does it sound like this will work?

You are right about tips being the ends. Tenderloin tapers off at both ends so some places cut those off. I have not smoked them but I would think that they need to be cooked at a low temp until they reach 140-145 and that's it. There is no fat in them to break down to where they will pull apart. You could treat them like a small loin or tenderloin (I imagine each one is probably 1/2lb or less).

Just thinking here.... I used to get those bags of pieces of tenderloin, I cused the butcher because I didn't look at the cryopac bag to see if it was two tenderloins inside instead of the pieces.

 

Now today, I think I would marinate them, maybe in a sauce like Disco did his pork in, if ya like asia food. Then I would maybe roll each piece in bacon, skewer it and add a piece a pineapple to the skewer with it. Dust it with some brown sugar and grill it. Be like a spicy sweet and sour.

 

Just me thinking out loud.

 

Disco's marinade:

Be careful though, tenderloin will not take long to cook, and when its overdone and dry its not so good. If I remenber right Disco had his pork on less than one hour and it wasn't even tenderloin.

 

Whatever ya decide I bet its good and remember to show us what ya do.

 

Bon Chance!
