Roasted Pork Tenderloin
I found a recipe on the WW website.
Roasted Pork Tenderloin.
If you want to see a really nice food picture, go there.
I followed the recipe fairly closely, though I upped the olive oil.
And even after doing that, this is a fairly low calorie meal. Or at least this main dish was. We ate it with fingerling potatoes, rolls, and black eye peas.
Just the meal I wanted.
Oh, and the best part?
Our house smells incredible!
2 lb pork tenderloin (mine was almost 2 1/2...I have a bottomless pit in my teenager :)
2 tsp dried thyme (or 2 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped) I LOVE having fresh thyme but all of my thyme was out of time. It was not good anymore. :( So it was dried thyme for us.
2 tsp dried oregano (or 2 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped) Again, it was dried for us tonight...
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder (I used dried chopped onion)
1 tsp table salt (I actually did the freshly ground sea salt)
1 tsp freshly ground peppercorn
2 tsp olive oil (except I used 4)
Spray the bottom of a shallow roasting pan.
Mix the olive oil with the spices/seasonings. (I think you are really supposed to rub the olive oil on it then sprinkle the seasonings over it but sometimes I like to be different...) Rub onto the tenderloin.
Roast for 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees (the thermometer should read 160 but honestly, we just sliced it and checked out the color :).
Let sit for 10 minutes then slice.
Very simple but very good.
And it makes your house smell really good.
