Pork fillets (also know as pork tenderloins) are a truly underrated protein. Not only are they very versatile, but they’re generally quite lean and healthy too. Pork really is ’the other white meat’. The average serving of pork tenderloin has a whopping 22 grams of protein and only 122 calories! Plus, most pork fillet recipes are quick cooking, and it’s also a perfect cut of meat to use in sandwiches.

Not only does pork tenderloin have less fat then beef, it’s also got more protein then chicken (a fact that most people are surprised to learn!). And it’s also known as the most tender and juicy cut of pork that there is.

Pork fillet recipes are also quite versatile because it’s a cut of meat that comes out great whether it’s roasted, grilled stir-fried, or cooked in a slow cooker. A common misconception is that pork is high in cholesterol, which is simply not true. Plus, the tenderloin has both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, both of which are needed by your body to produce high-density lipoproteins, also known as good cholesterol.

Pork fillet recipes can be both delicious, as well as quick and easy.

Pork fillet recipes are healthy!

Now, you might think that it’s just with modern science that we’re only now discovering how truly great for us pork really is, but that’s another common misconception. Pork fillet recipes are prominent among almost all cultures around the world. All of our ethnic recipes are real and authentic recipes that have been prepared for generations (and in some cases, as with our Asian pork recipes, for thousands of years).

Some general tips for cooking pork that you should always follow are to cook the pork to at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit (71 degrees Celsius) to insure it‘s well cooked all the way through.  Use a meat thermometer when roasting to insure that you cook the meat properly, without overcooking it. Don’t cut the tenderloin to look at the color of the meat, as this will cause a lot of juices to run out. And the last thing you want to do is cause an otherwise juicy cut of meat to become dry.

Perfect compliments for pork are green apples, walnuts, chestnuts and most of what are commonly considered ‘winter foods’. Heavier and more earthy flavors like mushrooms, turnips and potatoes tend to compliment most pork dishes really well. Red wines are used as ingredients in many pork dishes. A good quality bottle of Marsala wine will add both body and depth of flavor to pork. Also, another surprising fact to many is that whiskey is used in a lot of pork dishes, it’s woody and earthly flavors go wonderfully with pork.

For side dishes, mashed potatoes seem to be the universal favorite with most pork dishes. Also, try creamed leeks, they go brilliantly with roasted tenderloins. For the ’wetter’ dishes like pulled pork or stir-fried pork, rice is definitely the way to go. Pork also goes great with green beans (or green bean casserole), fresh steamed asparagus, potato salad, apple sauce and sweet green peas. Down south, pork is traditionally served with corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, butterbeans and buttermilk biscuits.
