Affordable, flavourful and quick-cooking, pork tenderloin is also incredibly versatile. Choose one of our favourite recipe to make tonight!
Italian sausage and bread make a flavourful, moist stuffing. After rolling the pork, your hands will be dirty, so have the twine precut and ready to go.
This noodle dish gets its signature bright yellow colour from golden turmeric. We've substituted leaner pork tenderloin for the traditional barbecued pork (but if you can find the real thing, it's definitely worth using). This recipe yields a lot, so be sure to use a wok or your largest nonstick skillet.
Simple guacamole is the perfect complement to juicy pork tenderloin and crunchy slaw. To make the guacamole in advance, leave the pit in with the mashed avocado and place plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent browning; remove the pit right before serving.
The sweetness of the apricots and the heat of the hot pepper flakes make the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. This recipe takes a bit longer to make than some, but the extra time it takes to stuff the pork is worth it. Make fresh bread crumbs by pushing stale bread in a food processor until in fine crumbs.
This popular Latin-style street food is traditionally served on a bun called a cemita, which is a sesame-topped egg bread. Luckily, you don't have to travel to try this tasty concoction: Here we use challah, which is similar to cemita and more readily available.
Pork tenderloin makes a leaner yet flavourful substitute in this lighter take on pork chops and gravy. If you like, use shiitake, oyster or portobello mushrooms in place of the cremini mushrooms.
Hoisin sauce adds tangy sweetness to grilled pork tenderloin. Cut down on kitchen time by cooking the noodles on the side burner of the barbecue, if your model has one. Add the noodles to the dressing just before serving, otherwise they will soak up too much of the sauce.
The chipotles in the glaze add a big kick. Seeding them allows the flavour to come through without much heat. Chipotle peppers freeze well, so once you open a can, freeze leftovers in an airtight container.
Tenderloin is an inexpensive, lean cut of pork that's perfect for slicing and broiling on skewers. The luscious homemade peanut sauce does double duty as marinade and dipping sauce, cutting down on prep time. Affordable appetizers never tasted so good!
Roasted root vegetables, such as potatoes, are the perfect side dish for this tenderloin. Start roasting them on a rimmed baking sheet 15 minutes before starting the pork. Nestle the pork next to the vegetables when you transfer it to the oven.
This tasty tenderloin is prepared with just a few ingredients. You'll find miso, also known as soybean paste, in the Asian aisle of the grocery store; it keeps in the refrigerator for up to 8 months. Serve with steamed vegetables and rice or noodles.
Lettuce cups are a fun (and easy!) way to enjoy this speedy stir-fry, but you can also serve it over steamed rice with a drizzle of the hoisin dressing.
A sticky maple syrup glaze on the pork makes these loaded fajitas slightly sweet and a favourite among kids. Save yourself some prep work by arranging the toppings on a platter and letting everyone assemble their own at the table.
This chunky soup is all about the fixings! Crisp lettuce, fiery radishes, creamy avocado and tangy sour cream top bowls of tender pork, beans and vegetables to make a balanced supper. Buy whole canned tomatoes and crush them with your hands for a rustic texture.
Lean yet flavourful, pork tenderloin is a great choice if you're watching your calorie intake. Roasting the asparagus alongside the pork simplifies cooking and enhances this springtime vegetable.
A summertime staple, these pork skewers are loaded with tangy flavour. Steaming the sweet potatoes before grilling reduces cooking time, making this a great weeknight meal.
This simple pork tenderloin is a healthy spin on everyone's favourite Greek culinary staple: souvlaki. We've swapped sweet potatoes for the traditional white potatoes and added other colourful veggies to boost the nutrient content.
Looking for a tender, lean alternative to chicken? Try pork tenderloin. Cut crosswise into thin cutlets, it cooks in minutes and needs only a little seasoning for satisfying flavour. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over top.
White rice and fatty pork chops are replaced with protein-packed quinoa and lean pork tenderloin in this twist on a Vietnamese favourite. Daikon radish has a very pungent aroma, but its crunchy sweetness works well when pickled.
Homemade red curry paste strikes a nice balance between sweet, salty and spicy, and brings out the best in the squash and the pork. Serve with Coconut Ginger Rice for an elegant meal.
Love black? Well, it's back! We show you how to wear the edgy shade from head to toe.
Though long-beloved by the fashion set, head-to-toe black outfits took a dip in popularity when over-the-top patterns and brights hit the runways over the past few years. But with some brands returning to a minimal esthetic, all-black outfits are bigger than ever because, let’s be real, they’re so flattering (read: slimming) and easy to put together (black goes with everything, including black).
Though wearing head-to-toe black is pretty foolproof, we’ve got a few tips to elevate your look that extra bit—inspired by one of our celebrity crushes, former Spice Girl and current fashion designer Victoria Beckham.
1. Choose pieces of varying volumes.
In the above pic, Beckham looks so polished because she’s wearing a long-line menswear-inspired blazer over skinny pants. Other great outfits that pair volume opposites are a fitted tank, shirt or turtleneck with a full skirt or wide-legged trousers.
2. Play with texture.
Black doesn’t have to be boring. If you play with different fabrics (see Beckham’s suede shoes, snakeskin clutch, patterned pants and sleek blazer), you’ll look ultraposh and put together.
