We loved this recipe because the flavors are just so savory! Wow, I can’t tell you how good it is – you just need to make it and see!
It’s easy to prep ahead – just season and sear the meat and also make the glaze and pour it over the meat. Place it in the fridge until it’s ready to cook. I had a larger tenderloin so it took about an hour at 325, but all you need to do is check the temperature and remove it at 140 degrees.
Here’s the recipe ~
Pork Tenderloin with Herb Glaze
To prepare the pork: Rub meat (tenderloin or chops) with herbs and salt and black pepper. Heat olive oil in a very large pan until smoking hot. Add the meat and sear well on all sides (if using chops sear both sides, turning once.
Mix the honey (or agave syrup), garlic, mustard, shallots, lemon juice and zest, and pinch sea salt. Pour over the meat and place in the oven and cook until meat reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees about 15 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat.
Remove meat to platter or plates. Place the pan on stove top over medium heat and bring to a boil add the butter and adjust the seasonings. Pour over sliced tenderloin or chops and serve hot. (Alternately offer the glaze at the table to allow each diner to add their own.) That’s how I serve it. Yum! The glaze makes it so moist and flavorful!
I got this recipe all those years ago from Once Upon a Chef. She has a host of great recipes! See? I go to sites like that and I want to try something new!! There’s no help for me!!!
Do you venture out and try new things or do you repeat the same menu? Whatever you do, I hope you’ll give this tenderloin a try!
