Pork Tenderloin and Cavatelli (Cozy Cafe)

Pork Tenderloin

1. Start with a 5 ounce pork tenderloin that has been hand trimmed and tenderized.  Dip it in a batter of egg, buttermilk and whole milk.

2. Once you have submerged the tenderloin in the batter, put inside a large container of (2) different coarseness of cracker crumbs that with any special seasonings you prefer.

3. Press the tenderloin firmly into the crumbs on each side, 3-4 times until it becomes flatter and each side sufficiently covered in bread crumbs.

4. Drop into a fryer at 350-370 degrees and fry until it is golden brown.  Usually in larger fryers the tenderloin will “float” when it is properly cooked.
