I almost never buy pork...
MAYBE 3 to 4 times a year, and that's usually a ham during the holidays.
I've read several negatives about pork so I prefer to avoid it...If I could get organically raised, I probably would serve it more often.
But- if I'm gonna buy pork- this is probably my favorite cut!
Why? Well- I like that I can cook 5 pounds of meat in just an hour and a half!
I also like tenderloins because there's a lot of things you can do with it.
