3. Use Visual Cues when Purchasing
When you are purchasing a pork tenderloin it is best to use some visual cues to ensure that you pick one that is good. A good pork tenderloin will have a color that is pinkish or red. Avoid buying a pork tenderloin that has a brownish color, unless you are planning to cook it right away. Even if you are going to cook it that night, it is still recommended to find a pork tenderloin that is fresher, which means it will be pinker.
There are also may stores that carry pork tenderloins that are already seasoned. If you are short on time you can pick one of these up and simply bake it in your oven whenever you want. These seasoned pork tenderloins are a great choice for when you do not have a lot of time to prepare or marinate the meat ahead of time.
