Some flavors that I like are mustard, maple, apples, peaches, whiskey, mushrooms, honey

Mustard would be my favorite with pork

Depends on which cut. Do a search for pork cuts. You'll probably get a page that will have pictures of beef cuts as well. Since it is a animal that has legs and ribs and whatever, you'll have similar cuts as beef (or other hooved animal). You'll have shoulder, butt, tenderloin, ribs, stomach. What are you looking for? Something lean or something that cooks out long time?

Pork is really good. But be careful with the lean cuts. It only takes a few minutes to go from nice to "jerky" consistency when overcooked.

I love blue cheese with pork tenderloin. Also a beschumel (sp?) sauce.

I do a tenderloin stuffed with spinach, goat cheese, and sun dried tomatoes.
There are a lot of good recipes under the search section. Just type in pork tenderloin

There is a Pork Loin which is BIG. Like the size of a beef tenderloin you would get at costco (wait, I get my pork tenderloin there too) and you have the Pork Tenderloin which are the tips of the bigger loin. Tenderloins are small and Pork Loin, you can cut into disks and have "filet mignon" type thing.

With this cut, you have to treat it like any other protein, don't overcook.

that stuffed tenderloin sounds amazing. what is your recipe for it?

This is a side question friend, im not looking for recipes for pork. More just getting some general information, tips, and favorite seasonings and marinades that compliment it's flavor. Thanks for your feedback!
