Easy Roast Pork Tenderloin

Updated: Sep 14


I love those meals that are simple enough for a weeknight meal yet equally special for Sunday dinner. Easy Roast Pork Tenderloin is ideal for both these occasions. I season lean pork with pantry spices, seared, and then finished off in the oven. The meat is tender, delicious, and a snap to prepare. I like to serve this with some roasted potatoes and a salad.


Ingredients for Easy Roast Pork Tenderloin:


2 pork tenderloins, about 1.25 pounds each

4 tablespoons grapeseed oil

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Time-Saving Tip: Prepare the rub in advance.
