Balsamic Roast Pork Tenderloin


Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Trim silver skin or connective tissue off tenderloins with a very sharp thin knife. Place tenderloin on a nonstick cookie sheet with a rim, lined with foil. Coat tenderloins in the balsamic vinegar, rubbing vinegar into meat. Drizzle tenderloins with extra-virgin olive oil, just enough to coat. Cut small slits into meat and disperse chunks of cracked garlic cloves into meat. Combine steak seasoning blend or coarse salt and pepper with rosemary and thyme and rub meat with blend. Roast in hot oven 20 minutes. Let meat rest, transfer to a carving board, slice and serve.

Servings: 2 with 1 lb. tenderloin... Make 2 for family of four!
Time to Prepare: 5 minutes prep, 20 minutes cook

Opening the oven after cooking this at 500 degrees always sets off our smoke alarm ... Beware!

Also, for those of you with kiddos who actually eat what you cook for the family, maybe try making two tenderloins (or a larger one).
