Equipment

  • Baking Sheet
  • Aluminum Foil

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. high quality pork tenderloin (Swift Premium is a good brand)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • Dash rosemary
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Dash of pepper

Instructions

  • Place olive oil and pork in gallon size zip-lock bag. Grind all spices in a spice mortar. Sprinkle mortared seasoning over pork, close bag, and toss. Place in refrigerator to marinate 2-4 hours or more. Feel free to also just rub the seasoning into the oiled pork by hand. I prefer to toss in a bag for easy clean up.
  • Remove pork from fridge 30 minutes before placing in oven to allow to bring to room temperature, if you do not have time for this add 4-5 minutes of extra cooking time. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place tenderloins at least 1 inch apart onto lined sheet. Place in preheated oven and let roast for 8 minutes. When timer goes off turn oven down to 325 degrees with pork still in the oven. Roast for an additional 18 minutes. Remove from oven when timer goes off. Let rest covered for 10 minutes. Slice and eat!
