• 2 lb pork tenderloins
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves, minced garlic
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary or, 1tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp thyme or, 1tsp dried thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

  2. Place the pork tenderloin on a rack in a roasting pan. (If you don’t have a roasting pan, a cooling rack set inside a cookie sheet works well). If using freshherbs they should be finely chopped. Combine oil, salt, rosemary and thyme in a small bowl.

  3. Using your fingers, massage the mixture into the pork tenderloin covering all sides.

  4. Roast the pork for 15 minutes and then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for additional 30 minutes. Pork is done when an instant-read thermometer shows an internal temperature of 155 degrees F.

  5. Remove the roast from the oven and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes before carving.
