Pork Tenderloin with Parma Ham

Svinemørbrad med parmaskinke

Pork Tenderloins are a common cut of meat in traditional Danish cooking. The tenderloin is considered to be one of the finest cuts of meat on a pig. The truth is that historically pork tenderloins would very rarely be eaten by anyone except upper class Danes. It was simply too expensive for the average Danish citizen. However, today pork tenderloins are readily available in supermarkets which allows us all to enjoy some very delicious traditional Danish meals.

TIP: You can wrap the Pork Tenderloin in bacon instead of Parma ham. *If you choose to do this, the bacon must be wrapped around the tenderloin before the tenderloin goes in the oven for the first time*.
