pork loin cooking emergency for tonight

mary shaposhnik | Dec 24, 201109:50 AM

Dinner tonight needs to be cooked in half an hour, so the plan was pork tenderloins with sour cherry sauce (my frozen sour cherries from the annual Wimbledon pitting o the sour cherries).

But I've been handed two pork loins, about 2.75 lbs each, instead of tiny tenderloins.

What can I do? The time constraints are leaving the house at 2:30, returning at 7:30, dinner at 8 (yeah, I know).
1. Cut into 1 lb pieces and roast for half an hour?
2. Tie together and put in oven, and remotely start the oven at 6:15 at 350? (Not positive this oven does this--I am not at home--but I think it does and is quick-heating).
