ROASTED PORK TENDERLOIN

ROASTED PORK TENDERLOIN

Ingredient:

  • 1 – 1 1/2 pounds Open Nature® Pork Tenderloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced 
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 bundle of fresh thyme

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. Rinse the pork in cool water and pat dry with paper towels, this helps the meat sear better without creating steam.
  3. Sprinkle the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper on all sides. 
  4. Heat a large skillet (I used cast iron) over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the heated skillet.
  5. Place the tenderloin in the skillet and brown on each side, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl combine butter, rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Mash together with a fork or spoon to create the herb butter. 
  7. When the pork has cooled rub with herb butter. Use a butter knife if necessary to avoid burning your hands. The butter will begin to melt, that’s ok!
  8. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and place the pork tenderloin in the pan. 
  9. Place fresh rosemary and thyme on either side of the pork tenderloin.
  10. Place the pork tenderloin in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. 
  11. Let rest for 5 minutes, so the juices can evenly distribute, before slicing.  
  12. Enjoy!!
