I bought a pork tenderloin the other night because it looked good, but I am not sure what I am going to make with it. I used part of it to make a stir fry with a honey chili sauce. It was really good, but I guess I need something a little more kid friendly. My 2 year old devoured it, but my 9 year old would not touch it. Got any ideas for me?

The honey chilli sauce sounds yummy!..wanna share???...How about making a pork and pasta dish...Kids usually like pasta...maybe egg noodles, pork strips and white sauce like a chicken alfredo only pork. When all else fails, my kids always liked good old shake and bake...How about pork slices with apple sauce?? Ok..heres one I have personally tried and its really good...Kraft dinner with pork pieces and broccoli..most kids like good old KD!

The kids love Kraft dinner and broccoli. That might be an idea. The honey chili sauce was really easy. I just cooked up the pork in a little oil, added some chili powder and some honey. Steamed some veggies and stirred it in with the pork and sauce. I did add a little bit of salt to it.

I made pork, mac and cheese, and broccoli, but my son requested them separate instead of mixed together.

there is nothing better than fried tenderloin, biscuits & gravy. i can make a meal on just that. another way i fix it is to bake it in the oven w/barbecue sauce. it slices real nice & u can eat it w/veggies or makes a good sandwich.

Fried tenderloin with biscuits and gravy sounds good too. I have about half of it left since the kids don't eat that much.

He might like this: g Cooking for Kids Site Brandii Lacey BellaOnline's Cooking for Kids Editor g Three Pork Tenderloin Recipes If your family can’t stand the thought of another “We’re having chicken for dinner tonight” meal, I’ve got just the solution! Actually, I’ve got three of them! Pork Tenderloin is a lean and healthy meat that can be prepared in a variety of ways. I’ve found the following recipes to be very freezer friendly. In addition, each recipe can be made with only TWO items (not including the side items). The best part about these recipes is that your kids can really take part in helping prepare each recipe. Recipe Number One: Apple Roasted Pork Tenderloin Ingredients • 1 pork tenderloin • 1 jar of Apple jelly Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 2. Warm jelly over low heat. 3. Place pork tenderloin in oven and bake for 30 minutes. 4. Pour jelly over pork tenderloin, and bake for 10 more minutes. 5. Repeat every ten minutes until pork tenderloin is cooked through. 6. Serve with a tossed salad, veggies, and extra melted apple jelly for a sweet topping.

I usually cut it up, pound it flat, bread it and fry it. It might not be the healthiest way to cook it, but it's a family favorite. Serve it with some noodles and applesauce and a veggie and there's dinner. I like it cuase it's pretty quick to cook.

I made some of it last night sliced thin and pan fried, but with no breading. I served it with broccoli and mac and cheese. The kids ate it all up.

Why not try a sloppy joe out of the remainder. Saute the meat and then cut into small pieces and shed it in your blender. Add some bar b que sauce to it and let it simmer under the meat is thoroughly cooked, then serve it on a hamburger bun. Your son may like it like that. Actually, that is what I am going to make probably tomorrow, but instead of a tenderloin, I am using boneless center cut chops.

As i remember growing up me and brother usually hated what one loved so it is very hard to please kids i do know that. Maybe a good thing to do it ask them what they want for dinner and combine them together to make both kids happy and then they both will eat. Its just a suggestion and hopefully it will work out for you at least i hope it does. Good luck with tonights Dinner
