Reviews for Cheesy Tenderloin Strips
"Delicious!! Loved dipping it in ranch!"
"Wonderfully delicious and different from the normal breaded pork tenderloin. The cheese adds a nice flavour. Used Garlic and Herb Ritz crackers and that added an extra oomph. We will definitely make this again!"
"LOVE pork tenderloin but it sometimes can be not so kid friendly. This recipe is the cure! It is so simple and easy to make. The kids LOVE the crunch and the cheeses! We also serve these up with Ranch. My boys go crazy for them!"
