Pork safe cooking temperature
Always use a meat thermometer to determine whether your pork loin is done. It should register at 145 F. At this point the pork tenderloin will be slightly pink, which is perfectly normal. But you can also cook it until the internal temperature reaches between 145° and 160° F, and it will be slightly more done and white in color at that point.
Let the pork rest for a few minutes, then slice and serve.
