Description

A juicy and delicious dinner in only about 45 minutes (plus marinating time). My husband used to say he didn’t like pork tenderloin until he had it this way. It can be set to marinate the night before cooking. Then sear and pop in the oven for about 30 minutes for an easy weeknight meal. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, Paleo.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Hormel Pork Tenderloin, Unseasoned
  • 1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • FOR THE MARINADE:
  • 3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Dijon Mustard (I Use Grey Poupon)
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Coarse Ground Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Thyme

Preparation

Rinse pork tenderloin and pat dry. Place in a 1-gallon resealable bag.

Mix all marinade ingredients in small cup or bowl. Add to bag, squeeze out as much air as possible, and seal. Shake or squeeze well to get the tenderloin completely coated with the marinade. Return to refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, preferably 2 hours (can even be done overnight).

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

While oven is heating, place oil in an oven proof deep skillet. Heat skillet to medium-high. Transfer tenderloin to hot skillet, reserving the marinade. Sear tenderloin well on all sides. Leave in skillet (or transfer to foil-lined baking sheet) and bake 30–40 minutes. Check at 30 minutes, and for best results, don’t overcook. Use an instant read thermometer and remove roast from oven when it reaches 145ºF. (It is no longer necessary to cook pork until well done. Today’s pork is safe from parasites, and can be cooked to medium, so a little pink in the middle is not only okay, but it helps keep your tenderloin from drying out by cooking it too long.)

Move roast to cutting board and allow to rest at least 5 minutes (10 is better) before slicing to serve. This helps retain the juices so they don’t all run out while the roast is fresh from the oven.

While roast is resting, pour remaining marinade into the skillet you used to sear the tenderloin. Bring to boil and stir constantly until the marinade reduces and thickens. Drizzle marinade over sliced tenderloin and serve.

Tip: Pork tenderloin is not a high fat entree, so be sure to serve it with a high fat side dish or a high fat dessert.
