Removing the silver skin keeps the pork tender during cooking.
To remove the silver skin from pork tenderloin, insert the blade of the Boning Knife underneath the silver skin, keeping the blade angled away from the meat, and cut along the entire length of the silver skin.
For a change of pace, 1 lb (450 g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips, can be substituted for the pork tenderloin.
