Wrong loin :-(

I have been all set to do the Raspberry Chipotle tenderloin for new years.. But my wife came back from sams with a 8 lb. LOIN :-) I was thinking of cutting it up into 3 or 4 separate cuts and freezing the remainder BUT would the tenderloin method work for the loin just longer cook time or should I use another method[p]Thanks

    <p />EggerinMo,
    I think it will work. The 3 or four piece idea is a good one. 2-3 pound pieces, and don't cook much past 140 internal.[p]The pictured chunk of loin is not the same recipe, but it was cooked direct like a tenderloin pretty much. Get a nice crust, and a nice blush pink middle. Yum.

    You are most welcome! I was jumpin up and down that I had one I felt qualified to answer. Been a treat when I find time to sit on the forum for a spell, and having a fresh question just sittin there all that I can answer as well as document with a photo. A dream come true. No need to discuss politics, or answer personal questions. Just a fat tempting opportunity to help someone have a good meal. [p]Hope it helps! A nice 2005 to you.

    EggerinMo,[p]I did a loin and not a tenderloin. Just don't overcook it. It turned out GREAT. May use a loin for tomorrow![p]mShark

    EggerinMo,[p]My wife has just announced that she won't buy meat anymore. She is afraid that she will buy the wrong "loin" also.[p]I suggested that she just go to the supermarket and read the lables to me, but that didn't work out either.[p]Apparently, I now have to buy meat all by myself.[p]
