Pork Tenderloin Sliders: The Other White Meat In My Belly

“The other white meat.”

It could be my own personal motto, but the National Pork Board thought of it before I could. It’s a good thing I like eating the delicious meat of the pig, or we’d have a problem with our shared motto.

As part of a four-week-long sponsored partnership with Publix, The Motherhood, and the National Pork Board, I was invited to try out different cuts of pork with new recipes. Seeing as I’m not a girl who loves being in the kitchen, I recruited Patrick to make all of the recipes I’ll be sharing. The world is a better place for that.

This week’s cut is pork tenderloin, and with that cut of meat, we decided on trying a recipe that was suggested.

Pork Tenderloin Sliders With Three* Sauces Recipe

1 1lb pork tenderloin, trimmed
your choice of seasoning
2 T olive oil
12 mini rolls (We used King’s Hawaiian)
baby greens
sliced plum tomato

Cut tenderloin into 1/2 inch thick slices.
Sprinkle pork with seasoning.
Heat skillet with oil over medium-high heat.
Add pork to oil to brown, turning once, about 1-1/2 minute for each side.

Note: Pork should be heated to an internal temperature of 145ºF.

Yogurt-Lime Sauce Recipe

Mix together:

1/2 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon lime zest, grated
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped (We used dry)

Goat Cheese-Basil Sauce Recipe

Mix together:

4 ounces soft goat cheese, at room temperature (1/2 cup) (Pro-tip: don’t use crumbles)
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped (We used dry)
1 small clove garlic , minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Pinch black pepper

*This recipe calls for making three different sauces, but Patrick isn’t an avocado fan, and since he was making the whole deal, I wasn’t going to push him on making something he didn’t like. That’s called: Picking My Battles.

Take one King’s Hawaiian roll, careful not to shove it in your mouth because you know of its sweet, buttery goodness, schmear it with your choice of sauce, slap on a pork slab, top with tomato and greens.

Shove that homemade pork goodness in your mouth.

Pin It

Seriously, it’s crazy delicious. And seriously, it took Patrick all of about 20 minutes from start to finish to make the entire thing.

This week at Publix, pork tenderloin is on special for $4.99/pound. It’s my personal recommendation that you try these pork sliders because my kids even ate them. And if my kids eat something new and like it, the Earth shifts.

Looks good, will be trying it out. I’m going to season the pork with fines herbs, and will probably sub rosemary for the basil, because that’s my herb of choice for pork.
