16th IPPA Tenderloin Contest Set to Begin

The Iowa Pork Producers Association encourages restaurants to claim the title of "Best Tenderloin." ( Iowa Pork Producers Association )

There are many Iowa restaurants that serve great breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches and the Iowa Pork Producers Association is ready to launch the search for the state's best.

IPPA will begin accepting nominations for this 16th annual contest on April 18 and give consumers the opportunity to nominate their favorite tenderloin restaurant, café or pub. Nominations can be submitted at www.iowapork.org or by using the form in the May issue of the Iowa Pork Producer magazine. The nomination process closes on June 5. Nominations are limited to one per household.

Any café, restaurant or tavern that serves hand-breaded or battered pork tenderloins is eligible to be nominated. An establishment must be open year-round to win, but seasonal restaurants can make the top five. The top five restaurants with the most nominations from each of the eight IPPA districts will be judged. The IPPA Restaurant and Foodservice Committee reserves the right to add additional restaurants to the judging process as it sees fit. Restaurant owners and operators are prohibited from nominating their own establishment.

"We look forward to this contest each year because it's consumer-facing and we love how excited and passionate some tenderloin connoisseurs' get," said Kelsey Sutter, IPPA marketing and program director. "We're looking forward to discovering more of the greats and finding Iowa's best of 2018!

Restaurants can help promote nominations in their establishment by downloading and printing a specially designed poster from the Iowa Pork website.

One person who nominates the winning restaurant will be entered in a drawing to win $100. The winning restaurant will receive $500, a plaque to display in the establishment and statewide publicity.

IPPA received 3,014 nominations with 271 different establishments named in the 2017 contest, won by the Grid Iron Grill in Webster City. The committee judged 43 establishments last summer on the quality of the pork, taste, physical characteristics and eating experience.

Iowa pork industry representatives will judge the tenderloins and IPPA will announce the winner during National Pork Month in October.

The contest recognizes Iowa dining establishments that have pork as a regular menu feature in support of Iowa's nation-leading pork industry.
