Introduction

This is a simple, yet surprisingly delicious recipe for oven roasted pork tenderloin. The recipe works just as well with red wine in place of white! I use the pan drippings to make an incredible pan sauce to finish the pork. This is a simple, yet surprisingly delicious recipe for oven roasted pork tenderloin.

Ingredients

    Pork Tenderloin, approximately 2 pounds (usually comes 2 to a package, about 1 pound each)
    Garlic, 6 cloves roughly chopped
    Oregano, Fresh, 3 TBSP chopped
    Olive Oil, .25 cup
    White Wine, .5 cup
    Salt, .5 tsp
    Pepper, black, .5 tsp

    Olive Oil, 1 TSP for browning


Directions

Trim any visible fat from pork tenderloins. Combine the pork and remaining ingredients in a freezer safe plastic bag, and seal bag to remove excess air. Leave in refrigerator at least 3 to 4 hours, or overnight, turning bag occasionally to ensure an even coating of the marinade on the pork.


Remove tenderloins from the refrigerator about hour before cooking to bring them closer to room temperature. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a hot skillet, add about 1 teaspoon of olive oil and brown the tenderloins on all sides, for about a total of 6 to 8 minutes.


Place tenderloins in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for about 25 - 30 minutes. The internal temperature should be about 145 to 150 degrees, using a meat thermometer. Remove tenderloins from the oven and place on a cutting board and tent with foil. Allow the tenderloins to rest at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving. The internal temperature should be around 155 degrees, and slightly pink pork is fine.


While the pork is resting, I make my pan sauce from the drippings (see recipe). To serve, slice pork tenderloin thinly and top with a spoonful of the pan sauce. One serving of pork is about 3 ounces cooked.
