Herbed Pork Tenderloin is so easy to make!!!

This recipe is super simple!  Give it a try!

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
salt and pepper
1 cup chopped fresh herbs, choose a variety from sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, mint...the sky's the limit here!  Be creative
2 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Trim silver-skin and extra fat off of the pork tenderloin.  Chop herbs.  Season pork with salt and pepper and roll into herbs so the pork it totally coated with the herbs.  Massaging helps.

In an oven proof pan heat heat oil over medium heat.  Lightly brown pork but be careful not to burn the herbs.  Medium to medium low heat is critical here!  Once you have a nice golden pork place the pan in the oven to finish cooking.  Bake for 20 minutes or until the internal temp reaches 165.

Remove from oven and place pork on a cutting board.  Cover with parchment paper and then a towel to let the meat rest for about 10 minutes.

Slice on the bias and serve with your favorite sauce.  Goes great with Cranberry Orange with Caramelized Shallot Sauce.
