This easy roasted pork tenderloin recipe is the kind of recipe I live for nowadays.

Easy, nearly zero prep, and on the table and ready to eat in 40 minutes or less.

Consensus says quick and easy weeknight meals are what we all need in our lives. Between school and sports, studying, clubs, parties, fun, and fellowship, who has time to actually cook fancy meals anymore?!?

Our family eats pork tenderloin on a regular basis and, unless I’m making pulled pork or BBQ, I always roast it in the oven.

Why? Because roasting pork at a high temp gives the meat this gorgeous outer crust that’s crispy and flavorful while keeping it super juicy and tender on the inside.

This is the most popular recipe on my blog, and for good reason!

There is zero prep time for this recipe, but you could always marinate the meat for a couple of hours if you wanted to. Just mix the garlic and herb paste together, slather it on the meat then refrigerate until you’re ready to make it.

For best results, make sure to always bring your raw meats up to room temp before cooking, and use a meat thermometer (this one is my fav) to ensure the inside is cooked to perfection.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees (F) and, using a paring knife, pierce the pork loin 8-10 times so the garlic herb mixture can soak into the meat.
  • In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, dried herbs, salt & pepper then slather all over the pork loin.
  • Roast the pork for 20 minutes on a baking sheet, 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).
  • Remove pork loin from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve with Apple Cider Glazed Brussels Sprouts or vegetable of choice.

    Thank you for a delicious recipe! I was searching for a way to prepare the pork tenderloin I had just purchased and this seemed easy enough and I had all the necessary ingredients. My picky family loved it! It came out very moist and tender and I will be making this again. Thank you !

    This was so good! Very juicy!! Mine took much longer to cook though. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have time to let the meat get to room temperature. The only things I didn’t have were the rosemary and sage. I also didn’t add pepper, but I used seasoning salt. Thank you, this is a keeper!

      Yay! So happy you enjoyed it! Also, please excuse my very late response to your comment! I’m recovering from brain surgery so my blog has had to take a back seat for a while. Thanks for your support!

    This looks fantastic. The pork loin I have, however, is almost 5 lbs!! Any tips on cooking that big of one?

      Hi, Lisa! Soooooo sorry for the late response! I’m recovering from brain surgery so my blog has had to take a back seat for a while. At 450 degrees, pork should cook about 15mins per lb. I would probably cook the pork loin in the same method EXCEPT I would cover w/ tin foil for the first 45 mins, then remove and let it brown for the remaining half an hour. Let me know if you try it out!
