Nominations sought for Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin contest


The Iowa Pork Producers Association is seeking nominations for its 12th annual Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Contest.

Pork tenderloin enthusiasts can submit nominations for their favorite beginning on May 1. Any café, restaurant or tavern that serves hand-breaded or battered pork tenderloins is eligible to be nominated. Restaurants must receive three nominations to enter the first round of judging. Restaurant owners and operators are prohibited from nominating their own establishment.

Nominations are limited to one per household. Forms are available at iowapork.org and in the May issue of the Iowa Pork Producer magazine. The deadline for nominations is June 9.

“We have made some much needed changes to our judging process this year and we are challenging ourselves to find the perfect tenderloin,” said IPPA Marketing and Programs Director Kelsey Sutter. “This contest is really a celebration of one of Iowa’s best kept secrets and we always look forward to showcasing an Iowa restaurant!”

One person who nominates the winning restaurant will win $100 from IPPA. The winning restaurant will receive $500, a plaque and banner to display in the establishment, statewide publicity and bragging rights for the year.

Representatives of the Iowa pork industry will judge the tenderloins on taste, appearance and physical characteristics. The judges will be looking for a juicy pork product that isn’t overpowered by breading and proportionally fits on a bun.

IPPA will announce the contest winner during October Pork Month.

The contest recognizes Iowa dining establishments that support the swine industry by putting pork on their menu.

The 2013 contest winner was River Rock Cafe in Mt. Pleasant.
