This pork tenderloin was a surprise double feature. When I went to the store I looked through the pork tenderloin looking for something a little more narrow rather than a giant slab. So I grab this pack take it home brine it ,take It out the next day and it’s actually two perfectly narrow pork tenderloins. I couldn’t have been happier! Although both brined, because I didn’t realize it was two till it separated the next day I figured I could do two different things with both.
