Ingredients

  • 2 lb boneless pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F) and, using a pairing knife, pierce the pork loin 8-10 times so the garlic herb mixture can soak into the meat.
  2. In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, dried herbs, salt & pepper then slather all over the pork loin.
  3. Roast the pork for 20 minutes, baste with drippings, then lower the heat to 325 and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees (F).
  4. Remove pork loin from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  5. Serve with <a href="http://slimpickinskitchen.com/apple-cider-glazed-brussels-sprouts/">Apple Cider Glazed Brussels Sprouts</a> or vegetable of choice.
