Pork Tenderloin and Cavatelli (Cozy Cafe)
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.
