I was looking for a new recipe for pork tenderloin when Nichole posted this recipe for Garlic Herb Pork.
The fresh herbs and garlic made a nice paste to rub over the pork. I think next time I might let the rub sit on the pork for a few hours so the flavors could infuse into the meat a bit.
Garlic Herb Pork
As seen on The Cookaholic Wife, from Once a Month Mom
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with the garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Rub over the pork.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat,
Add the pork to the skillet and brown on all sides, then place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning the pork over every 5 minutes.
Remove the pork from the oven and allow to rest, tented with foil for 5 minutes before slicing.
