Herbed Pork Tenderloin

It's September and that means we will resume using our oven for meals. While we cook a lot of chicken and fish, we also like pork tenderloins, an easy meal to prep with lots of seasoning choices too. Lately, we've been trying out various herbs and rubs. Not only is a pork tenderloin easy to prep; it cooks quickly too. 

And, this recipe was so easy. Just mix the herbs together, rub on the pork sear it, then roast for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy.

Herbed Roast Pork Tenderloin 
  • 1-1/2 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • salt
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  1. Mix herbs in bowl, rub over pork and press in meat.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, stir for 1 minute add pork. 
  3. Cook pork for 10 minutes, turning to sear each side.
  4. Transfer to roasting pan; cook 20 minutes. Let rest 5-10 minutes; cut and serve.
The meat was flavorful and tender even without a gravy or sauce. We had side veggies: a combo of steamed green beans and red peppers and sautéed mushrooms.
Did I mention HOW easy this recipe was to prepare?

I'm not a big fan of pork but my mother was. She would have loved your roast. I do eat pork. It just is not a favorite.
