How To Make Garden Herb Rubbed Pork Tenderloin
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley
1 tablespoon of sage leaves
1 tablespoon of rosemary leaves (removed from the hard, woody stem)
1 teaspoon of coarse sea salt
Zest from one lemon
A few teaspoons of good olive oil
Spicy peppers (optional) finely diced
- 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme *I used lemon thyme
- 1 tbsp
- 1 tbsp
- 1 tbsp rosemary leaves (removed from the hard, woody stem)
- 1 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- Spicy peppers (optional) finely diced
- 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- Rinse all of the herbs and add to a bowl or to you mortal and pestle set. Then start muddling the herbs/salt/zest. This will take about 2-3 minutes.
- Pat pork dry with paper toweling and place on a platter, fat side up. Spoon herb mixture over the top and coat to cover. I also topped with some very tiny, hot peppers, but this is preference. Add some black pepper and cover platter with foil or plastic wrap; place platter in the refrigerator.
- Let pork rest in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours or more. It is important to remove the meat from the fridge for about 10 minutes before you place it in the oven.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Place the pork in a roasting pan and cook at 375 degrees F. for about an hour. Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the meat is fully cooked to an internal temperature of 143 degrees F. (Pork will continue to cook to a safe cooking temperature of 145 degrees F. after it has been removed from the oven)
- Transfer pork to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 10-12 minutes. This allows the juices to return to the meat and will yield a delectable, juicy dinner.
