Three Pork Tenderloin Recipes

If your family can’t stand the thought of another “We’re having chicken for dinner tonight” meal, I’ve got just the solution! Three of them, actually!

Pork Tenderloin is a lean and healthy meat that can be prepared in a variety of ways. I’ve found the following recipes to be very freezer friendly. In addition, each recipe can be made with only TWO items.

The best part about these recipes is that your kids can really take part in helping prepare each recipe.

Apple Roasted Pork Tenderloin Recipe

2. Warm jelly over low heat.

3. Place pork tenderloin in oven and bake for 30 minutes.

4. Pour jelly over pork tenderloin, and bake for 10 more minutes.
