Ingredients

  • 1 1-1/4 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2-1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 º F.

    Cut the tenderloin in half to make it easier to handle when pan searing.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the rosemary, thyme, 1-1/2 tablespoon olive oil, and about 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Spread the mixture over the pork tenderloin, coating it well.

  3. In a heavy oven proof sauté pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add the pork tenderloin pieces and sauté for about 6 minutes total turning the meat every 2 minutes until well browned all over.

  4. Transfer the pork in the pan to the oven and roast uncovered for about 20 minutes. An instant thermometer should read 145º F for the meat to be done. Cover the meat loosely with foil for about 10 minutes before slicing.
