Rosemary Thyme Lemon Pork Tenderloin
Pork Tenderloin is one of the leanest cuts of meat available. When prepared right, they are very tender, juicy and delicious regardless how you season them. And don’t overcook them or they will be dry. Our Rosemary Thyme Lemon Pork Tenderloin recipe takes advantage of the milder flavor of the tenderloin and imparts and wonderful herb flavor.
This recipe highlights Rosemary, Thyme and Lemon, all of which compliment the basic pork tenderloin flavor. This recipe can also be adapted for use with other rubs, including all of our BBQ Rubs.
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the tenderloins. Mix well and rub the mixture over tenderloins. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25-35 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 8 servings.
