I have one cooked pork tenderloin to freeze, is it best to freeze it whole or slice it first. I am asking because I am not sure what the is the best way to have it ready for re-heating at a later date.

    <p />New Bob, why cook in advance? The whole process of cooking a PT only takes about 40 minutes! :~}

    Your picture looks great.
    I had out of state company, had 4 pork tenderloins wrapped in a japapeno mustard glaze sauce. They did not stay long enough for me to cook for them. (their loss) I gave two away and have one that i want to freeze. I am only one and like to change meat every couple of days. The cook I had planed never with company never took place.
    New Bob[p]P.S. I still have a tenderloin I need to freeze.

    New Bob, the only time that I have frozen a PT, I sliced it and later reheated in microwave like PP - 5 minutes at 30% and served on a bun with BBQ sauce. Maybe someone else has an idea - good luck :~}

    New Bob, [p]If you have a food saver or other vacuum sealer I think you could do it either way. I have frozen cooked boston butt pulled and also a whole butt. The whole piece I defrosted, pulled and nuked and it was as good as fresh. The pre-pulled was just nuked and was great also. [p]If you don't have a food saver the I suggest eating over the next few days. I like to take leftover PT and put it in a pita with roasted peppers cheese and a little hot sauce. It won't stay around long eaten this way.[p]Chuck <><

    I was going to say...I never have enough leftover pork tenderloin to freeze!
    Sliced thin...such an excellent sandwich....damn I'm hungry!

  • New Bob,
    I'd freeze it in chunks and slice later. I've done it both ways and when I sliced first the slices tended to fall apart.
