Temperature of pork tenderloin when pink?

  • 3
  • Share

At what temperature should a tenderloin be removed from the heat source in order to be pink (or the minimum level of doneness that is safe to eat but nor according to FDA specs)? I would like to grill it (but not to a fare-the-well).

Thanks

  1. I cook it to 145, then let it rest, covered with foil, 10-20 minutes, depending on size.

    1. Agree with 145 before resting. Here's an excellent meat temp. guide from Martha Stewart:
