Was so skeptical, but it works! I had four very small pork tenderloins, they were about 9 oz. each. So, according to the recipe and the author's note about cooking multiple tenderloins, I cooked them at 500 for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Then I turned off the oven and left them in for 52 minutes. Then I removed the pan from the oven, covered it in foil, and let sit for 15 minutes while the rest of our dinner cooked. The pork came out perfectly!! So juicy and moist, and cooked to the perfect temp. Will definitely use this method again!
Fantastic! I have cooked pork loin many times. I have tried many different recipes. This is THE best one I have ever tried. I can not believe how juicy the meat turned out. I, like many others, were skeptical that it would be that much better. My family kept saying how juicy and tender the meat was during dinner. It was super easy too. What could be better? Thanks for the recipe!!
Thank you! There were lots of things in your recipe that one might question, but your clear and highly specific instructions, and your acknowledgement of and answer to the potential doubts a reader might have instilled confidence. Following your instructions to a "T" resulted in the easiest and best pork loin I've ever made. Just the tiniest tinge of pink in the center; moist and juicy. I know what a perfect pork loin LOOKS like, but I've never been able to MAKE it. THANK YOU! P.S. don't sear it beforehand - it will brown just beautifully without a sear! P.P.S. I did a moderately heavy crust of salt, garlic pepper, ginger, rosemary and sage (all dried) and was a fan of the outcome.
I made this using the exact directions for Easter . It was the best pork loin I've ever made! My family raved on and on about it! I cut 3 potatoes in half, rubbed them in olive oil, salt and pepper, and placed them next to the meat. I made 2 sweet potatoes for our Moms separately, drizzeled with melted butter & brown sugar, fresh green beans, cold broccoli salad and deviled egg platter. They are still talking about how wonderful my meal was.... Thank you. I love this site, though I was Leary as I've never cooked anything at 500° in my whole life! It was simply amazing. I will definitely be making this again!!
OMG!!!! I literally put Easter dinner on hold to write this review. I had never bought or cooked a boneless pork tenderloin before. I was going to put in my slow cooker but I went to work for a few hours and forgot. I used a 2.24 lb. loin and followed the instructions very carefully. I used 1/2 a packet of Lipton's onion mix to season and added a few tablespoons of water (I was nervous about the pan drying out). I set my timer for 46 minutes after I turned off the oven (I have a gas oven) and wow!! very pretty, moist, and slightly pink. It tastes really good too- I snuck a little piece ;- ) This is by far the best loin I have tasted.. happy in Ohio
Easy, good, and you can customize seasonings to fit occasion. Try salt, pepper, and bacon wrap! I fix roast beef with the similar method.
Turned out great so moist and nice.
This really works! I've done about five of these and they always come out perfect. I hate overcooked pork so I was very excited about a high temp long - soak time recipe. Our loin is usually 1.2 pounds so 7 minutes at 500 degrees F. works for me. The only thing is I have to pull the circuit breaker to prevent the oven's auto cool feature. I give it one hour soak time in the oven.
I made this last night. I had a 1.45 pound tenderloin. I was a little hesitant on this method, but I took the plunge. Got the oven to 500, and cooked the pork for 8 minutes. Turned off the oven, and set my timer for 1 hour. Took it out and let it rest for 10 minutes. OMG this was so good. It turned out perfect, juicy and moist. I will never, ever cook a pork tenderloin any other way. The only thing I would do different is to make my own rub. I used Grill Mates Pork Rub and to me it was a little bit too spicy. Thanks Beach Girl for a wonderful recipe
Great recipe! However, steps 7 and 8 in the instructions are out of order?
