Can you can you deep fry a pork tenderloin?
Absolutely! I deep fry a turkey every Thanksgiving, so I'm always trying
to maximize the use of my fryer and peanut oil, before I clean it up
and put away. As it turns out, pork tenderloins are great when cooked
in the deep fryer and are quick and easy to prepare.
What's unique about my fried tenderloin recipe?
It's all in the preparation... specifically the slicing
or cutting step BEFORE frying. You want to make shallow cuts along
each side of the raw pork. This forms V-shaped pockets allowing the fryer
oil to reach more of the meat while cooking. This extra surface area adds more "crispy
goodness" to the outside of the tenderloin!
