Pork Tenderloin Parmigiana

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This is very easy to make and delicious!!! I usually serve it thinly sliced on a bed of cous-cous with a big dollop of sauce on top. You will need an oven-safe covered skillet, or you can transfer the meat to a casserole dish after browning on the stove.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat egg, add salt & pepper.
  2. Dip tenderloin into egg mixture, then in bread crumbs.
  3. Brown in hot oil on all sides. Pour off grease.

  5. Remove cover, top with cheeses. Cook an additional 10 minutes, uncovered.
  6. Serve with cous-cous topped with spaghetti sauce.

This was delicious! I used about 1 1/4 pork tenderloin, 1 cup pasta sauce (since I did not need extra for spooning on a side dish), and a shredded Italian cheese blend. Based on the suggestion by mama smurf, I sliced the pork into 8 pieces, then breaded and browned each piece. I sprayed the bottom of a casserole dish big enough to accommodate all pork pieces in one layer and then topped each piece with some of the pasta sauce. I cooked it for about 30 minutes, added the cheese, and put it back in the oven just long enough for it to melt.There was quite a bit of juice in the dish at the end of the cooking time. I might try a broiler pan next time to see if it stays crispier. Regardless, it was enjoyed by all! Thanks for sharing.

This is so easy to do. It's amazing how it's just a few ingredients and it turned out so tasty. Even with a jar of spaghettit sauce. No need to use a homemade sauce when with a jar it can be so good. Thanks Christina :) Made for All you can cook buffet

Made this for Fall Pick A Chef and I am glad that this in one recipe I picked! I followed the instructions except for using store-bought spaghetti sauce...I used recipe#460768#460768. DH loved this dish! Definately a keeper. Thank you for submitting this recipe. P.S. I might slice the tenderloin first next time in fairly thick pieces flatten just a little then dip in the egg and breadcrumbs and brown them and bake.
