Roasted Pork Tenderloin

This was recently prepared at one of my company’s lunches and is a great autumn dish.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano leaves
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rub minced garlic into the pork.
  3. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, and thyme.
  4. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the tenderloin and rub it into all sides. Make sure you cover all sides.
  5. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the tenderloin.
  6. Fill roasting pan with about 1 inch of warm water.
  7. Place pork tenderloin in roasting pan.
  8. Cook in oven for 25-30 minutes per pound or until tenderloin reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Pork will still be a bit pink at this temperature. If you want it more well-done, cook to an internal temperature of 150-160 degrees.
  9. Remove pork from oven and let it stand for 5-10 minutes.
  10. Transfer to cutting board and slice into smaller pieces.
