Pork Tenderloin-Cabbage Salad

An article written by Sylvia Tan entitled Pork can be low-fat (Mind your body, Straits Times) mentioned that pork tenderloin is leaner than chicken breast.  I agree to that that's why I used some for my pork-cabbage salad :-).

The total fat found in a skinless chicken breast is almost the same as those found in a pork tenderloin.  Just for comparison purposes see the table below  (source : http://caloriecount.about.com/ )
