    Pork Tenderloin


    INGREDIENTS

    • 2 pork tenderloins (10-12 ounces)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat the oven to 375º F.

    2. Place the thyme, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper in a mortar. Crush well with the pestle to create a paste. Spread the paste on the tenderloins, covering all sides. Cover the tenderloins in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.

    3. Remove the tenderloins from the refrigerator and discard the excess marinade.

    4. Heat a large frying pan on medium-high. Add the oil and brown the tenderloins 3 minutes on each side.

    5. Place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 145º F. The center of the meat should be pink.

    6. Place the tenderloins on a cutting board or level surface and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
