Reheating Pork Tenderloin
Sheila J
Hi! I made 30# of pork tenderloin 2 days ago for a party tonight. It turned out great! Now I need to reheat it in a nesco this evening, but I discarded the juices because they looked fatty. My dad told me last night that I ought have saved them. What to do!?
Yes, saving would have been good. Pork tenderloin, like turkey breast, is quite difficult to reheat without drying it out.

Reheating in the Nesco is a BAD idea for this task. Not tight enough cover. 30 pounds is too much for the one Nesco, anyway.

Make pans, layer no more than about 2 inches thick, pour chicken broth over. Seal tightly with foil.

Put in preheated oven, preheated 325 degree F. oven. It takes about 30 minutes per inch of depth. Speed it up by preheating the broth. Must reach 165 in the middle of the pan. As soon as it does this, it can be transferred to a preheated Nesco (covered) at 180 to keep warm for serving.
