Crispy Onion Pork Tenderloin

I came up with the original idea for this recipe when making a green bean casserole, the flavor of the onions and the pork work awesome together; time permitting I make my own fried onions as well. I like to serve this with a cheesy garlic mashed potato and a fresh green salad.


By: Kipp Rix  Serves: 6



3 cups (6 ounces) canned French Fried Onions

2 tablespoons red chili powder

1 tablespoon granulated garlic

2 tablespoons dried crushed basil

4 tablespoons flour

6   1 1/2" inch thick pork tenderloins or 1" chops

2 eggs  


Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 F

In a zip lock bag combine French fried onion, chili powder, garlic, basil and flour; crush onions and mix. Beat eggs in a bowl, season pork with salt and pepper to taste. Coat pork in the egg; place the pork in the plastic bag to coat with the onion mixture. Place pork on foiled baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes or until no pink remains in the meat.
