Pork Loin

I bought some thin cut top round tenderloin and some cubed pork on sale. Does anyone have interesting ideas on how to prepare it?

Not sure what you have there, JG. You mention pork loin, top round (not a pork cut) and tenderloin as well as cubed pork.

Please clarify.

Sorry, disregard the "top round"

The package of cubed reads: pork loin top loin chops boneless tenderized.

The thin chops: pork loin top loin chops thin cut.

For the cubes you can make chili or a pork stew.

For the chops, Id sear them in a hot skillet, remove and cook up some sliced onions in the skillet, add a roux and make a gravy. Put the chops back in and finish cooking them. Serve over mashed potatoes.

Some of the characteristics of pork loin that I like are: even texture throughout the whole cut, and how well it holds up to aggressive flavoring. I've heard that the trich worm is no longer a health concern, but I would still make sure to cook it thoroughly. But not to overcook it, especially a thin cut, so it doesn't get tough and dry.

I ditto the suggestions: chops are great soaked in gravy, and pork chunks in a green chile stew is one of my favorite dishes. It also stir-fries well. Cut the thin chops into thin ribbons, cook with long juliennes of your choice of veggies and an oriental sauce. Serve with rice or a thin flat bread like tortilla.
