I’m always in the search for a new pork tenderloin recipe. This offering is an oven based recipe that is moist and tender with a nice taste.
I do a lot of pork and tenderloin is a favorite. I just wanted something different. I used the rub from a Food Network recipe. A 5 star rated recipe so I want for it.
It was good… the but is… the garlic as used imparted very little garlic flavor. To the point my wife wanted to know why I didn’t use any garlic. This got it the 3 and not a 4.
Notes: I used my standard pan sear oven roasted cooking technique for pork tenderloins. It was only a slight departure from the Food Network method.
Start by preheating oven to 400 degrees convection. Trim a pork tenderloin and remove any silverskin. Mix the spices: 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander and thyme.
Rub the spice mixture into the pork tenderloin.
In an oven safe pan (cast iron is great here), heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. When hot, add 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tenderloin and sear each side for about 2 minutes. There meat is triangular so that is 3 sides.
Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until internal temp of 155. About 20 minutes. Remove and move to serving plate. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
