Absolutely the Best!
My husband just returned from a visit to his childhood home of Davenport, Iowa He always looks forward to having as many pork tenderloin sandwiches as he can fit in during a one week stay. This year he came home disappointed. They went out and had pork tenderloin sandwiches in 2 different restaurants and all of them used ground pork instead of the true pork tenderloin. So I decided to do something about it and Google led me to Amana Meats. I immediately ordered 30 pork tenderloins and had them sent out here to California. They arrived as stated in 2 days via UPS. Even though the dry ice was gone they were still well frozen. The very same night we made the most delicious pork tenderloin sandwiches my husband had ever eaten. Instead of ham this year for Easter we are going to have pork tenderloins. Thank you Amana for still doing it right!
Amana Response: So glad your are enjoying and that we can supply a former Iowan with his Tenderloin fix!

Meritorious of all the 5 Star Reviews
One of our biggest treats growing up in Iowa was going to the Drive-in restaurant and getting the big pork tenderloin sandwiches. We've been all over the country and have found nothing comparable. Even buying whole pork loins and hammering them out ourselves was not the same. We finally found Amana Meat Shop and Smoke House on-line. I called for information and made an order. We tried at them our first chance and they were everything the customer service rep said they would be. These were the most tender pork tenderloins we've experience since leaving Iowa 45 years ago. Looking forward to trying their other products, too.
Amana Response: Thank you so much! So glad to hear you are enjoying your Iowa Tenderloins!

Delicious! I live in Florida, a transplant from Illinois, and no one down here has ever heard of a pork tenderloin so I was so happy to find your company online! These are the real deal! Makes me feel like home!

BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD!!!
My husband grew up in the mid-west and loves pork tenderloins sandwiches, When ever we go out their for a visit that is the first thing he wants to get, so I decided to see if I could find them on line and did. Amana Meats is great to deal with and these sandwiches are out of the world.

My mother grewup in Iowa and loves tenderloin pork sandwiches. She now lives in Colorado and hasn't eaten them in years. I bought them for her birthday and she absolutely loves them. We will definitely buy them again.

I sent these tenderloins as a gift to my mom, who was born and raised in Iowa, but now resides in Pennsylvania. When she visits she always has to have an Iowa tenderloin (and a maple donut). Apparently when you ask for a tenderloin on the East Coast, you get the actual loin.:) She called me when they arrived, since she had no idea, and I'm pretty sure she was crying!! That night I received the picture of them eating them. Hilarious!! I am so happy with the whole process. I would absolutely order again.
Amana Response: Thank you, Valarie! Great story about your mom receiving them! We look forward to serving you again.

My husband is from Iowa, and I was so happy to find Amana Meat Shop, online. We enjoyed our first pork tenderloins the other night, just like he remembers from home.

We always get the tenderloins for Christmas and they are always perfect!

A taste of home
Have lived away from Iowa for 15 years and missed Tenderloins so much! These are like being home again!!
Sarah | 19 Dec 2016
I had the breaded tenderloins shipped to my dad all the way in Alaska. They arrived on time and in perfect condition. I would highly recommend this company to everyone.

HAVEN'T HAD BREADED TENDERLOINS IN YEARS AND THESE WERE GREAT TASTING
Debbie | 13 Dec 2016
We purchased this for our son who is a tenderloin aficionado. We want him to compare these to those he orders in one of his favorite restaurants. We haven't given him his present yet, but I will say they arrived as planned, although there could've been more dry ice added to keep them really cold. (The may have sat on a truck longer than expected.) I put them directly into the freezer. However, they look good enough to eat. ;-)

Wonderful Gift for expat Iowans
Sent to my sister and she loved her favorite Iowa sandwich
Terry Jasento | 9 Dec 2016
A little taste of home.
Carol Burris | 1 Dec 2016
Wonderful service and great products. Anyone from outside the Midwest.... if you have never had a Tenderloin - this is the place to try it! Addictive!
Dean Messer | 30 Nov 2016
"Can't make tenderloins in Colorado" so they say. OK we will just get them from Amana Meat. We know they are great because we used to live 30 miles from Amana and have shopped there many times as well as going there every time we are back in Iowa. Orders are shipped to us in Styrofoam/dry ice and arrive still frozen and ready to enjoy and we enjoy them very much. Keep up the good products.
Nancy Hall | 27 Nov 2016
So glad to have the tenderloins to send to Connecticut. They don't seem to be able to get them on the East Coast. My daughter and her husband loves tenderloins. Thank you.

Breaded Pork Tenderloins
The product was delivered frozen solid in perfect condition and are great, will buy again.
Cynthia | 21 Oct 2016
I order the tenderloin patties as a special gift to my family for Christmas. We live in Texas and chicken fried steak rules here so pork tenderloins are hard to come by. I was raised in Iowa on farm raised pork and I enjoy eating a good tenderloin sandwich when I have the opportunity. My family seems to enjoy this gift each year as I divide up the order amongst them and my dad (who is from Iowa also). I have ordered from other places but we enjoy yours the best! Thank you!

Breaded Pork Tenderloins
This was the first time ordering the breaded pork tenderloins. Very flavorful and tender. Fried several, then made an onion gravy and let the tenderloins stew for about 20 minutes in the gravy. They were awesome.
Margo | 27 Jul 2016
breaded pork loin
Very tender and a not too heavy crust.
Renetta | 27 Jul 2016
Even Better Than Before
We've ordered tenderloins from the Amana Meat Shop in the past, and they've always been great. But these are even better than before!
Barbara Smith | 26 Jul 2016
Again, the tenderloins arrived completely frozen. My husband loved the larger size.
Debbie | 26 Jul 2016
close as I can get to Iowa
Finally got some for myself after giving as gifts for years! I used fry pan. Just a little bit of oil on medium heat, turn, and they are done and delicious! The people at Amana meat are wonderful to deal with, too!
Amana Response: Thank you, Debbie! And we loved being able to send a bit of Iowa to you!
Deb H | 10 Jul 2016
Every year we send tenderloins at the 4th of July to our family in Medford, OR. This year I found Amana Meatshop and placed an order for 2 boxes of the 7/oz twenty count tenderloins to be shipped. They shipped and arrived exactly on the days as promised. The feedback was unlike any other year since we started shipping them in 2005. The entire family raved that these were, hands down, the best and requested that this be the "go to" place for all future shipments. This request, and the rave reviews, came from both our Iowa born and raised family as well as our family members who did not grow up in Iowa eating different tenderloins over the years, as they also noted the difference in taste, size, and meat vs breading ratio. Needless to say, we are now be lifelong loyal customers. Thank you for bringing joy to our family!

Laura Neill | 6 May 2016
ORIGINALLY FROM OHIO I KNOW WHAT A PORK TENDERLOIN SHOULD TASTE LIKE--CAN'T GET THEM IN VA. ENJOYED -- HAVING THEM EVERYDAY TIL GONE--HAHA
Stuart Schmitt | 25 Apr 2016
Born and raised in Nichols, IA we misses the great IA pork tenderloins. Now we found them again.
Gary | 18 Apr 2016
Simply the best ever. Folks in Colorado do not know about these delicious sandwiches, which is too bad for them (and me).
Doug | 1 Apr 2016
Tasted just like the pork tenderloin sandwiches we used to eat in Cedar Rapids. Honest price and flawless shipping.
Judy Joyner | 22 Mar 2016
Delicious as always.
Dara Miller | 22 Mar 2016
Very good. Was looking something more along the lines of the Texas Tenderloins that are sold at fairs, etc., but all-in-all a good product.
Cynthia Winfrey | 20 Mar 2016
FINALLY! My new source for pork tenderloins!
I'm an Iowa gal living in Colorado and haven't been able to find those famous pork tenderloins until now! Just like the ones I remember when I lived in Iowa. AWESOME!
Mickey | 14 Feb 2016
Ordered this for family for Valentines Day - they LOVED it. The only way to get these tenderloins in the South is through Amana!
Sharon Spillman | 25 Jan 2016
The tenderloins are delicious and we love them, however, every order that we have placed, they have arrived broken in pieces. We would like to recommend that you pack them with additional cushion to eliminate this.
Amana Response: Thank you for your comments! Glad you are enjoying them, however, so sorry they are arriving in pieces. We are working on eliminating this issue and hope to fix it before we ship to you again!
Catherine Letteet | 9 Jan 2016
Perfect!! Just as I remember from the Midwest. No one makes them for sale where I live in Southern California, so discovering your website was a treasure.
Kate | 3 Jan 2016
Fantastic! We grew up near the Amana Colonys and the tenderloins are just as good as we remembered! We've orderded from Amana Meat Shop before and will continue to do so! nice to have a little bit of Iowa in the south!

Christine | 22 Dec 2015
I've missed these!
I am from Iowa and now live in Utah, where you can not find breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. I ordered them from Amana and they are just how I remembered them ! They were delivered quick and still frozen.
Jeff Stolte | 26 Nov 2015
These tenderloins are nothing less than outstanding! A Midwest treat that I often have longed for has been fulfilled and so easy to prepare. Try these if you miss that good ole tenderloin sandwich!!
Lori Fallon | 3 Nov 2015
excellent product! thank you!

Back Home Again
I grew up in the Midwest and loved bread pork tenderloin sandwiches...Now, living in the West, they are nearly impossible to find...So, I took a chance and ordered bread pork tenderloins from Amana and they are wonderful; easy to prepare and absolutely resolve my need for that home style, great tasting sandwich. Even if you live where you can get them at a restaurant; these are probably better, and undoubtedly less expensive. If you love breaded pork tenderloins, these will make you very happy! I will buy these again and again...
Judith Feild | 9 Oct 2015
We are enjoying the breaded tenderloins - they are fantastic!
Richard Bowman | 8 Oct 2015
I left Indiana in 1967. I have not been able to find these breaded Pork Tenderlions. Finally I found them. I love these breaded tenderloins. Such great memories and introducing my California friends to them. Great service, great shipping. What a find. Thanks so much. I will be back for more!
Ginger | 6 Oct 2015
I am from Iowa but live in New Mexico. I have been trying to make these but couldn't get it right. Went on line and I am so glad I did. Yours are perfect. I am in heaven! Thank you.

Iowa North Carolinian loves Iowa Tenderloins
As a native Iowan living in North Carolina, I often get homesick for my home state. One of the things I missed is the Iowa Breaded Tenderloin! I ordered a box and split it with another Iowa friend.. They are FANTASTIC!!!!! We will be ordering again. Go Hawks!!!
James E. Freeze | 10 Aug 2015
We have ordered these several times. They're great!
Colin | 29 Jul 2015
Like the old days
Just like we had when I was a kid. Hard to find anywhere but Amana.
K. Amling | 26 Jul 2015
As misplaced Iowans, we enjoy being able to have our tenderloin sandwich in our own home here in the desert. Don't have a deep fryer but works well in a bit of oil in a skillet. Thawed first of course. If you have a better way, let me know.
Richard Kennedy | 24 Jul 2015
Order received the dry ice was gone. The tenderloins were still very good. I will most likely reorder.
Amana Response: Thank you, Richard. Yes, the dry ice will almost always be gone by the time you receive your order.
Tom Wray | 16 Jul 2015
Grew up in Jefferson and Keokuk counties in SE Iowa...always my favorite and as another client had mentioned...not availble in Ca.,..

Breaded Pork Tenderloins
I grew up on a farm in Marshall County, Iowa. I have been to the Amana Colonies to eat at restaurants. The breaded port tenderloins are not available outside the midwest. I have given some to friends and they love them. Thanks for making them available.
Barbara Smith | 6 May 2015
Arrived in good shape
Ordering by mail is always risky. Tenderloins arrived with all but two completely frozen. Had to sample them the first night. Great!!!
Sue | 5 May 2015
I was really glad to find the pork tenderloins. I've been looking for some where to buy them for years. These are really delicious - I wish they were a little thicker.
Amana Response: Thanks for the review, Sue! You are right on - we are working at making them a little thicker. Stay tuned!
robert kinnison | 5 May 2015
Growing up in Iowa, loved those tenderloins. The best I've ever eaten. I do recommend them.
John Van Syoc | 24 Apr 2015
Ordered tenderloins as a gift for some out of state friends. Product shipped the next day, arrived 2 days later in perfect condition. My friends were thrilled with a taste of home (former Iowans). Thank you!

Breaded pork tenderloins
We have lived in CA for years but are originally from the Midwest. This is one of the things we miss the most and these are delicious!!
Barbara Sova | 24 Nov 2014
Can't Be Beat!
Amana meats can't be beat for flavor and quality. Breaded tenderloins are large, meaty, and delicious when deep fried. Try them once, and you will enjoy the goodness only Amana and Iowa pork can give you!
vicki lowe | 19 Nov 2014
Love Iowa tenderloins, they are great!
Mark Flohr | 25 Oct 2014
Purchase of Breaded Pork Tenderloins
I received in about 4 days. Arrived well frozen. Patties were bigger across than I expected but a little thin. Good flavor but not as good as the Indiana version as they are much thicker and more flavor probably because thicker meat and breading but pretty much the same kind of flavor which I can't seem to make myself.
James E. Freeze | 11 Oct 2014
Order arrived on time in good condition. Tried them last night -- delicious as usual
David Dickinson | 7 Oct 2014
Very good Product and arrived still frozen and well packed. Will order from again. David.
Chari | 2 Sep 2014
These tenderloins taste just like I remember enjoying when I lived in the Midwest. What a treat. Easy to fix and good to eat. The meat is tender and not too thick, so they cook quickly, with just the right crunch. Whether as a sandwich or on the plate, they are really good.
Breaded pork tenderloins are best deep fried the old-fashioned way. Preheat oil to 375 degrees F. Place frozen tenderloins carefully in oil and fry until they are golden brown and float to the top of the oil. Cook approximately 4-5 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time. Color and time may vary depending on the temperature of your oil and fryer; make sure not to overcook. Keep frozen until cooking. We recommend serving your sandwich with our German-Style Mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, onions & pickles, or make it your own with your favorite toppings and condiments!
