25+ BEST Pork Loin Recipes

These Pork Loin recipes are so juicy and delicious! Whether you add it to a pasta, bake it in the oven or smoke it in a smoker, a pork loin is always a good idea for dinner!

We love a good pork loin around here! If I am being honest, we love any kind of pork. But a pork loin is something we usually make for a Sunday dinner, so it always seems a little more special.

Of course, you can always bake a pork loin with some simple seasonings and serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. But you can also turn a pork loin into tacos, add it to a pasta, or even make it into a stew!

Difference Between Pork Tenderloin and Pork Loin

Although they sound similar and interchangeable, these two cuts of meats are actually quite different. A pork loin is a thicker, fatter cut of pork that can be broken down into pork chops and pork roasts. A pork loin is usually around five inches across.

One the other hand, a pork tenderloin on the other hand, is much smaller and only about two inches across. It is very tender (hence the name,) and this is the cut used in these pork tenderloin recipes.
