What is the difference between Pork Loin and Pork Tenderloin?

The main difference is what part of the pig the meat comes from. You might think so as the names suggest, but they aren’t! The Pork Loin will be wide enough to cut steak like pieces from, and the tenderloin is thinner and smaller. You can see in the picture that each slice is 2-3 bites at most.

Can Pork Tenderloin be a little pink in the middle??

YES! The USDA just gave their seal of approval for slightly pink Pork Tenderloin and I’m so glad. It’s juicier and so much tastier. See below for recommended internal temperatures for Pork.

How pink is TOO PINK for a cooked Pork Tenderloin Recipe?

The USDA used to recommend 165F internal temp for Pork Tenderloin but now they say 145F is just fine. Slightly pink is okay, but the pork will still be mostly white/opaque. Three cheers for 145F internal temp!

I hope you give this Honey Herb Pork Tenderloin a try ASAP. Let me know how you like it! Don’t be scared. You’ve got this.
