Pork Tenders

Pork Tenders. Here’s a kid friendly meal that the grown ups will love too. If you have little ones, they love using those little hands to eat with rather than using a fork. Kids also love all things nugget and tenders form. Fried pork chops in tender form are perfect dipped in homemade old fashioned bbq sauce!

    Never have thought of using pork. I do it with cube steak strips, but this is now on my list! Thanks!
