Herb-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin

Herb-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin

A quick and easy weeknight dinner idea using pork tenderloin and herbs

Serves: 4 to 6

Total time: 50 minutes (20 minutes marinating)

2 lb pork tenderloin, untied
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Coat the meat with the oil, season with salt and pepper. Combine the garlic and herbs, then rub on the meat. Wrap in plastic and marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. In a hot ovenproof skillet, sear on all sides.
  4. Place the skillet in the oven, and cook for about 20 minutes, until a thermometer reads about 160°F. (For quicker cooking, slice the meat into 1-inch medallions before marinating.) Serve with (frozen) sweet-potato fries.

Picky eater pleaser: Before searing, wipe off the “green stuff” with a paper towel.
