We are vegetarian, but when I host holiday dinners I cook meat for my family. I typically make pork tenderloins because everyone likes it and it is easy. However, I do not like taking it out of the oven and cutting it when everyone is here. Can I cook it almost to completion earlier in the day, slice it, refrigerate it, and then put it in the oven for a bit prior to serving? or will that make it dried out?
I am trying to make as many dishes in advance so that it will be an easy dinner, without a bunch of mess, while the guests are here.
Any other meat suggestion instead of pork tenderloin? I have made turkey breast in the past...it was pretty easy too; can that be cooked in advance?
Since I only make meat once every two years I get a little nervous about my meat cooking ability.
