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