I've got a pork tenderloin. How should I cook it?
I haven't done a tenderloin in years and need some suggestions.

Marinade?

Grill or bake?

I cook them frequently. Cut it out of the package and dry it w paper towels. Rub a little oil all over it, then coat with your favorite dry seasoning blend. Use a BBQ rub, or some Montreal steak seasoning, or herbes de provence plus some garlic, or make a paste of chopped rosemary, garlic, salt, and a little more oil.

Roast at 425 degrees for 25 mins, or til it’s 150 degrees internally, using a convection fan if your oven has one. Rest, tented w foil, for 5-10 mins before slicing.

Cut up onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and any other veggies and dump into the bottom of a roasting pan with olive oil and your choice of seasonings. Season tenderloin and place on top of veggies and cook at 350 until pork is to your liking.

Here lately I’ve been using fajita seasoning and smoking them for a couple of hours.

Sous vide works great for those

Unfortunately, that's not an option.

If you want to go a little sweet, McCormick makes a brown sugar bourbon rub. I coat the tenderloin with that pretty generously, then smoke it. Use teriyaki to baste and glaze.

It's a nice change of pace from the usual savory recipes.

Make sure it’s a TENDERloin and not a loin. I learned this the hard way. I sous vide the loin then seared and it was still tough and nasty.

Marinate with something citrusy and garlicky. Grill to medium rare.

re: I've got a pork tenderloin. How should I cook it?
I like to coat them lightly with whatever cajun seasoning I have on hand and brown in a bit of olive oil in a cast iron pan. I take it out and toss it in the oven to finish cooking to desired temp. In the meantime I throw about a quarter to a half an onion chopped finely in the pan with the olive oil and browned bits along with sliced mushrooms. When cooked down a bit I add a little bit of chicken broth (you can use wine I suppose or something else) to get all of the good stuff off the bottom of the pan. Then I add enough half and half or heavy cream to make a good sauce and cook it till it comes together and reduces to desired consistency. When tenderloin is done and rested a bit slice it up and serve with mushroom sauce layered on top. Any number of sides go well with it.

I generally just oil them, season them with salt, pepper and a variety of herbs and spices I like, then grill it to medium rare.

I'll put vegetables to grill like zucchini, yellow squash, thick sliced onions, thick sliced tomatoes and usually by the time I'm pulling them off the grill, I'll also pull the pork off.

Like already mentioned, let it rest a bit before slicing.

I usually marinade and grill. But I deep fried one the other day that was excellent

hard to beat this, wrap in bacon and cook until internal temp 145*. You can cook it as-is, stuff with cream cheese & jalapenos, or glaze with favorite marinade (I-net pic to give you an idea)

Slice thin, mash, butter milk, seasoned flour, fry.

I bought one today myself and I like the idea of sweetening it up. May do that.

140 is what I cook them at. I find they start to dry out quick above that.
