Ingredients
  • 1   pound 
    pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2  cup 
    dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Tip)
  • 1   teaspoon 
    sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    paprika
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    onion powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 4   teaspoons 
    canola oil
  • 1   
    large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 4   teaspoons 
    cornstarch
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
2.
Holding a chef's knife at a 45 degrees angle and perpendicular to the tenderloin, slice the pork into 4 long, thin "fillets."
3.
Mix breadcrumbs, sugar, paprika, onion powder and salt in a shallow dish. Drizzle with oil and mash with a fork until the oil is thoroughly incorporated. Lightly beat egg white with a fork in another shallow dish. Sprinkle cornstarch over the pork slices and pat to coat evenly on both sides. Dip the pork into the egg, then press into the breading mixture until evenly coated on both sides. (Discard leftover mixture.)
4.
Place the pork on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until just barely pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 145 degrees F, 14 to 16 minutes.
Tip:

1.
Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs, trim crusts from whole-wheat bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice of bread makes about 1/2 cup fresh crumbs. For dry breadcrumbs, spread the fresh crumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees F until crispy, about 15 minutes. One slice of fresh bread makes about 1/3 cup dry crumbs. Or use prepared coarse dry breadcrumbs. We like Ian's brand labeled "Panko breadcrumbs." Find them in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets.
