As the name says, tenderloin is a tender cut of pork, though it can be a little on the dry side. Fat gives flavour and moisture to everything and that is why tenderloin tends to be served with some type of sauce. Slow frying adds both flavour and moisture to drier cuts of meat and the parmesan cheese gives yet another layer of flavour. Use real flaked parmesan cheese; the “parmesan” granules sold from the dairy case are not suitable.
