If it were up to my husband, we'd have this every night! Ok, so I'm no professional photographer, but even my bad picture looks delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Rub pork with oil and sprinkle evenly with red pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. (I just use my coffee grinder to grind up red pepper flakes).
  3. Press parsley and rosemary evenly over roast so they stick.
  4. Transfer pork to small nonstick baking pan. Tuck tapered end of tenderloin under itself for even cooking.
  5. Roast 18 to 22 minutes or until barely pink inside.
  6. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Great recipe, Mims! I used the seasonings except for the red pepper. I used the baking instructions on the package of pork(350* for 30-40 minutes). The meat was perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked after 30 minutes. After letting it rest for the 10 minutes, I sliced it and was very pleased with the tenderness. Thanks so much for sharing!

Lip smacking good.. I added some quartered olive oil coated small red potatoes for starch along with diced red onion to the pan and cooked an extra 5 minutes. I steamed some broccoli and the meal was set. Everything was good enough so that my wife packed a plate for lunch the next day. Doesn’t get any better than that…
