How are Pork Tenderloin and Pork Loins Different?

There’s a few things to think about when making roast pork tenderloin vs pork loins. Don’t confuse these two cuts. They vary in size and thickness. So you’ll have to be flexible and adjust cooking times depending on the size of the pork.

  • Tenderloins are thinner and more tender, thus the “tender”. They cook quicker than regular pork loins. They are usually also smaller, ranging from 1-2 pounds.
  • Pork loins are thicker and often times more lean, thus resulting in a tougher cut of meat if you overcook it.
  • Cooking times will vary greatly, particularly if you bought the tenderloin, which cooks much faster. So cook your loin roast longer if it’s large or thick. If you’re cooking with pork tenderloin, then the cooking times will be quicker.
  • If you are unsure on how long to cook your roast, cook the pork loin until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F in its thickest part.

  • Try to bring your pork out of the fridge about 1 hour before cooking. Allowing the pork to slightly come to room temperature will allow the center to cook more evenly.
  • Searing the outside of the pork tenderloin or pork loin on a hot skillet will help keep the juices in. Thus, a more tender center.
  • Invest in a thermometer. This will allow you to monitor the internal temperature of the pork accurately.
  • Use your favorite seasonings. There’s so many possibilities for making your pork flavorful.
