Healthy Meat for the Family and Kids

We all need protein and I know that making kids eat meat can be dramatic because it can be tricky for kids to chew.  When pork tenderloin is properly cooked it is tender and delicious!  I believe the best cut of affordable meat is pork tenderloin.  We love this simple pork tenderloin marinade of Italian Dressing and Worchestire Sauce.  We use this same marinade on Farmhouse Marinated Pork Chops for another simple and delicious family meal!

Vegetables are our favorite side dish for grilled meats.  We got a grill basket like this for Christmas last year and it has made our life SO MUCH EASIER!

For this recipe, we trimmed the thin layer of fat (also called silver skin) from the pork tenderloin and then cut it in medallions.  Ensure that each piece is the same thickness to make grilling easier.

Pork tenderloin is the leanest cut of pork and I’ve heard that a study by the USDA determined that pork tenderloin is just as lean as a skinless chicken breast.

Pork tenderloin is done cooking when the meat thermometer reads 145 degrees F.  Whole muscle cuts of meat are their juiciest best when cooked to 145 degrees F., removed from the heat and allowed to rest for 3 to five minutes before slicing or eating.  That blush of pink is safe to eat!  If you haven’t tried pork that is slightly pink you should try it with an open mind!
