RS-3A low 4 is probably more like it but as I said before, I have lots of pork tenderloin recipes and it is middle of the pack. If the spice list is to your taste, give it a try.

Notes. I consider a pork tenderloin as a three-sided meat so the searing is about 2 minutes per side times three. Any oven safe pan should work but cast iron is always preferred.

      It is only a preference thing. While this has garlic the other has a more straight garlic taste we prefer. For savory spice people, this would be much preferred.
