Wait, this sounds very hard. What is a broiler pan? Just one of those things with the slits in it?

Megg, not hard at all. Yep, broiler pan is the one with the slits in it. Spray it with Pam or put the meat on foil, it will be easier to clean.

Ton, where do you get pork tenderloin? I probably sound lame, but I don't usually cook with meat, but this sounds good. It's not pork chops right?

Ton said...

Miss, you should get a tenderloin from Trader Joe's. They have them at Costco, too, but the smaller ones at TJ's will be perfect for your family. No, not pork chops, it's a long, skinny piece of meat.
