Recipe Notes

You can use any cut of pork that you like, but the pork tenderloin will cook up much quicker. This recipe takes just a little over 30 minutes and the tenderloin will be nice and tender. Using pork loin or chops will actually add a bit more flavor but will take longer to cook.

You can take this a bit spicier by adding a little cumin and a touch of chili powder. Try using oregano instead of the sage.

"If I had to narrow my choice of meats down to one for the rest of my life, I am quite certain that meat would be pork."
