The week of October 17 (This week), Pork Tenderloin is on Sale for $2.00 off per package of pork tenderloin, in honor of National Pork Month at Costco. Pork Tenderloin is a wholesome cut packing tons of flavors, ounce for ounce, pork tenderloin is as lean as a skinless chicken breast.
This week I am in a challenge to create a “Family Favorite” recipe using this cut of Pork for my family. I will be posting that recipe, along with pictures, later this week plus a $25 Costco Cash Giveaway for YOU to try and win!
For even more recipes and tips please visit Costco’s “In The Warehouse” provides flavorful recipes and tips for preparing featured cuts of pork. Check back weekly for fun, new information on Costco’s featured cuts. You may also want to visit PorkBeInspired.com for info. on all of the different cuts of pork and about the best, healthiest way to cook Pork.
Things that stuck out at me as I read through the websites listed above were how many cuts of Pork there are (There are so many choices!). The many many ways you can cook pork. There are also some great freebie cook books on there as well. So, you definitely will want to visit to grab those!
And did you know that Pork tenderloin is heart healthy & is endorsed by the American Heart Association? Yep! It is true. The pages also tell the best ways to handle and store Pork, which I feel is a very important thing to know with any foods this information.
An Important Temperature Update: In May, the USDA reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three-minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees.
I hope you will all come back at the end of this week to see what Pork Tenderloin Recipe I chose as our Family Favorite. And also for your chance to win the $25 Costco Cash!
Happy National Pork Month!
