Meat is a hard sell with my teenage daughter unless I make it look like a restaurant dish. Drizzle ranch dressing or barbecue sauce on top and it's a home run. —Donna Carney, New Lexington, Ohio

  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornbread/muffin mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • Ranch or barbecue sauce, optional


  1. Cut pork crosswise into 1/2-in. slices. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, cornbread mix, salt and pepper. Place egg in a separate shallow bowl. Dip pork in egg, then in flour mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add half of the pork; cook until a thermometer reads 145°, 3-4 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Wipe skillet clean; repeat with remaining oil and pork. If desired, serve with sauce.
