Hello, my name is Marsha Orosco, I'm the executive chef from The Dome Restaurant Bar and Lounge here in Coral Gables, and today I'm going to be showing how to bake a pork boneless tenderloin in the oven. So the way I like to start, I usually use lean pork. It definitely has good flavor, a little bit of fat is okay but I definitely like to keep things as lean as possible. And the first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to start by seasoning it with some salt. And I'm wearing gloves because I am going on both sides. One of the things, especially when you're cooking meat, it's really important to make sure that you've thoroughly seasoned both sides of the meat if you're roasting it whole. The next thing I'm doing is adding some black pepper to it because salt and pepper make meat taste very good. Third item that I'm using is cumin. Down here in south Florida, I mean obviously there's very different ways that you can roast whole pork. Here at the restaurant I actually do mine with a bit of a Cuban influence and that's where the cumin comes in. It definitely gives it some additional flavor. It has an earthy note to it and I think it really gives just a nice rounded rustic flavor to the pork. Now the last thing I'm going to add, and again this is definitely a big hit here in south Florida, is Mojo sauce. Mojo is a traditional Latin sauce. It's made with fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh squeezed lime juice, some cumin, salt, pepper, lots of garlic and extra virgin olive oil. And definitely I like to make sure that both sides of the pork have the Mojo that's been tossed on them. And I'm just turning it over a little bit just to make sure that the sides are coated evenly. And then obviously since there's the juices on here I'm just going to lightly season it again just to make sure that we have some wonderful seasoning on the top of this pork. Now the next thing that we're going to do is we're going to transfer this to a more shallow pan as I'm going to do right over here. Doesn't that look beautiful? I'm going to take off these gloves and then what we're going to do is we're going to roast it in our oven. I like to cook my pork at about 300 degrees for approximately 40 minutes to an hour. It really depends on the size and the weight of the pork. I do have one that I have already began so I'm going to pull that one out so you can see how beautiful this pork looks. Isn't that gorgeous? I mean that's definitely what you're looking for when you're baking whole pork. You can see that it has really nice flavor. And you can actually see some of the seasoning still on there. And obviously you can see it's really nice and juice and tender. So there you go. This is how you roast a whole pork tenderloin. My name is Marsha Orosco, executive chef at The Dome Restaurant Bar and Lounge. I will see you soon. Thank you.
