Crumbed Pork Fillet

    45 mins

    This always comes out tender and juicy even if you overcook it a little. The breadcrumb crust holds in all the juices. Works well for chicken breasts, too.

    I am going to go ahead and give this five stars because it is a good starting point. I knew there needed to be more seasonings added and the reviews verified that. I rubbed olive oil over the tenderloins, followed by some dijon mustard. Sprinkled on garlic powder, salt and pepper and then rolled in Japanese panko bread crumbs with crushed rosemary. Seared on top of the stove with some butter for a few minutes and then put in the oven to finish cooking. Everyone loved this. It looked beautiful, was incredibly moist and simple to prepare. Cannot wait to make it again. Served with sauteed green beans and seasoned potato wedges.  -  29 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had no time to marinate and I NEVER make good pork, so I tried this tonight. It was good that this is the first review I'm writing! All three of my kids asked for more, and they won't eat anything! Here's what I did: trim fat, coat with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, garlic powder, onion flakes and cracked pepper. Then I refridgerated it in a bag for an hour, but I think it would have been fine without. Then I poured some Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs into the bag and shook it until coated. Baked at 425 for 45 mintues. It was mouthwatering. Served with mashed potatoes and peas and it was a huge hit with almost no work. Try it!  -  21 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My teenagers inhaled this one!! I coated the tenderloin with oil and made homemade bread crumbs as my girls can't eat most storebought crumbs as they have milk intolerances. I mixed in oregano, basil, rosemary, onion and garlic powder. This was the most moist pork I've ever had. Do place it on a sheet of tinfoil to keep from having to scrub the pan and tent it with tinfoil, because it burns within a few minutes if left uncovered. Uncover during the last few minutes to brown crust. It certainly helps to have it stand at the end. Overall, it was just terrific  -  28 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
