No other US state does pork tenderloin like Iowa – crispy yet juicy. The pork cutlet is breaded to perfection, deep fried, then usually served as a sandwich. Try this dish at Belmond Drive-In, winner of the 2015 Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin contest held by the Iowa Pork Producers’ Association.

Scotcharoos are classic Iowa dessert bars made from Rice Krispies, peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate. Another refreshing sweet dish from Iowa is rhubarb pie, which is typically made from rhubarbs fresh from the garden. Visit the Ox Yoke Inn in Amana and enjoy a delicious slice of their traditional German rhubarb streusel pie.
