How to Cook Pork Loin

Save

Pork tenderloin is a verstile and simple dish to prepare, and because there is very little fat and no bone, it's also a well priced cut of meat.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 pork tenderloin, 1 1/2 lb.
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. each marjoram, oregano, dried chives
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar or marsala cooking wine
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove pork tenderloin from wrapper.

  • Place meat in 9-by-13 baking dish. In small bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar or wine and spices. Stir well with fork to mix.

  • Pour olive oil mixture over meat, flipping once or twice to make sure all sides are evenly coated.

  • Place uncovered in preheated oven and cook for 45 minutes.

  • Remove from oven, tent with aluminium foil, and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Carve on the diagonal and serve with rice, applesauce and steamed zucchini.

Tips & Warnings

  • Chop up leftover pork and add to 1 1/2 cups cooked rice and 1/4 cup cooked peas for an easy main dish.
  • Don't let meat overcook; since this cut has very little fat, it will become dry and tough.
