Stupid cookbooks.

Published by at 3:31 pm under In The Kitchen

I don’t know why I listen to recipes when they talk about the time needed to roast meat.  It’s never an accurate time.  For instance, today I have a 1.5 lb. pork tenderloin in the oven, which my cookbook assured me should only need to roast 25 minutes at 400 degrees to reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.  When I took it out of the oven 25 minutes later, the internal temperature was 96 degrees.  Awesome.

I know how long it takes to roast a pork loin.  Why didn’t I just do what I always do?  Because I trusted the cookbook.  Stupid.
