This is an easy cost efficient recipe for week nights. You can put it together in the morning in a few minutes. Place in fridge to marinate all day so the the pork takes on all the great Italian flavors.
3lbs.high quality pork tenderloin(Swift Premium is a good brand)
Dash of pepper
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. 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.
Place in refrigerator to marinate 2-4 hours or more.
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.
Leave roast in the oven, turn temperature down to 325 degrees. Roast for an additional 18 minutes.
Remove from oven when timer goes off. Let rest covered for 10 minutes. Slice and eat!
“I believe good nutrition is a lifestyle to live by. Many “diets” make life challenging, and, for the most part, are just too difficult to sustain for any period of time. Healthy food should taste great and be fun, while consuming foods that provide the most nutrition with the least amount of calories being stored as fat. Homestyle Food and Fitness is designed with the idea of bringing people together without the worry of ruined fitness goals because of the food on your plate. My goal is to provide great tasting, healthy food choices combined with physical training and personalized coaching to create a successful pathway for where you want to be. “
