How to Cook Pork Tenderloin in a Six Quart Roaster

Save

Pork tenderloin is the most tender cut on the pig. Taken from beside the spine, there is little fat on the loin -- it is equal to a chicken breast in saturated fat and has more minerals and nutrients. Common and easy to find in a supermarket, the tenderloin can make a great centerpiece for any meal. A standard oven roaster is six quarts and an average pork tenderloin is about two quarts, making the roaster a great medium for cooking this cut. By having enough room to add vegetables and other ingredients, a flavorful meal can be produced.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 pound pork tenderloin
  • Paper towels
  • 6 quart roaster, with lid
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large onions, peeled and quartered
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Spices
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Meat thermometer
  • Rinse the pork tenderloin and pat it dry with paper towels.

  • Place the pork in the roaster and drizzle on the olive oil.

  • Sprinkle on your preferred spices and place the onion and garlic beside the pork. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Cover the roaster with the lid and insert it into the oven.

  • Cook the tenderloin for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Insert the thermometer into the middle of the pork -- it should read 155 degrees Fahrenheit when done. If it is not done cooking, continue cooking and check every 10 minutes to see whether the pork has reached this temperature.

  • Remove the pork from the oven and let it rest 20 minutes before serving.
