A good tenderloin is one of my favorite foods.  When it's done right it becomes my "go-to" meal at any given restaurant. It's hard to order anything else off of the menu when I know there's an amazing tenderloin waiting for me.  If I do order something else, I usually regret it...especially if someone at the table orders a tenderloin.

But in the meantime...let's focus on the delicious breaded tenderloin.
