Herb-coated Pork Tenderloin

This is probably one of my all-time favorite pork recipes. It is so flavorful with the fresh herbs, and the portions can be adjusted to serve a few or a crowd. I generally make 1/2 of the recipe (using just one pork tenderloin) for 4 servings. With all of the fresh herbs, it’s the perfect recipe for spring! Enjoy!

From Cooking Light, Oct 2005
Serves 8

Ingredients
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed
Cooking spray

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator overnight or up to 2 days (or just mix everything together for a few minutes while you preheat the oven – if you forget to marinate it!).

Preheat oven to 400°.

Remove pork from bag. Place pork on a broiler pan (or oven-safe dish) coated with cooking spray.
