Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned Rub

10:33 PM

Its been a while since I've posted a recipe, huh? Well, this is a good one to share!

For a while we could not find plain 'ole non-marinated pork tenderloin, and I was excited when my commissary recently started selling huge 10-pounders for cheap.  We've been buying them up lately and cooking them different ways, but I sort of got spoiled after years of using the pre-marinated packs and didn't even know what to do with these big hunks of meat.

I found a basic rub recipe from Food Network , and now this is my new favorite way to cook pork tenderloin!  The seasoning combination is just right, and searing the meat gives it a nice crispy exterior and a super moist interior.  We loooove it!

Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned Rub
Serves 4

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic

1.  Preheat oven to 450˚.

2.  In separate bowl mix dry ingredients such as garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, thyme and salt. Stir mixture with a fork until all the ingredients are well combined and they form a seasoning. This will be used as a rub to ensure the pork is well seasoned throughout. Sprinkle the rub over the tenderloin with a dry hand, then rub the pork with the seasoning over both sides of the meat, pressing gently so the seasoning adheres well to the tenderloin.

3.  In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and heat. Add the minced garlic and saute, stirring, for 1 minute. Put tenderloin in the pan and cook for about 10 minutes, searing each side using tongs to turn the meat. Transfer meat to a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.
