Farmland Oven Perfect Isn't.

Farmland Oven Perfect
Fresh Pork Tenderloin


Farmland's newest product allows the home cook to roast the pork tenderloin in a plastic cooking bag without having to worry about all the mess and fuss. I purchased the product primarily because I just happened to have a one dollar coupon, and it was on sale to boot. Normally, I have my own recipes dealing with pork, but decided to let Farmland be an option. Sadly, I should have just left the coupon on the package for someone else to use, and saved my money.

Preheating the oven to 450F, I peeled off the labels, lined a pan with aluminum foil and placed the bag flat side up; so far so good.

After 30 minutes, the internal temperature was still at only 140F; an additional 10 minutes was needed to get the pork to the desired 150F.

Good thing I heeded the instructions and used the aluminum foil; there was spattering and a good amount of the marinade had leaked out.

The topside of the pork tenderloin, which had roasted pan side down, was dry and over browned. While the meat cut easily, the texture was mushy and the taste was bland; even spooning the leaked marinade over the meat did not help.

Sorry Farmland, but this product of yours will not be finding a permanent home in my kitchen.
