Perfect Pork Tenderloin? Well... yeah... This has to be the easiest and BEST way to cook a pork tenderloin that I've ever seen. I followed the directions to a "T", and was pleasantly surprised! Did I marinate? No. All I did was wash the tenderloin under cold water, tossed it in a shallow greased (olive oil sprayed) glass "brownie pan" covered it my dry rub (garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper, a touch of Mrs. Dash) then spayed the whole thing lightly with olive oil (always "seal" your meats with an oil- butter works too) and let it cook per directions. WOW!!! Juicy... tasty... easy!!! Suggest you use glass/ceramic for cooking, as it did get a very light burn on the outside and the spices did get baked onto the pan. The end result is amazing- and this is without a marinade or much time in the preparation. Any extra TLC won't hurt- but I do suggest you "seal" it, before cooking, with a light coat of oil/butter to help lock in the juices. Was a little worried it wouldn't cook all the way through- but my 4.24 lb. tenderloin had NO problem. I let it sit for an hour in the oven- just to make sure, before the foil wrap. This cooking instruction is pretty "idiot poof". I've proven it!
Fantabulous! I really liked the flavor of this. I did sort of cheat and cook a bone-in pork roast, but grilled the outside, then finished in the oven.
Loved the smokey heat of the chipolte! Reduced recipe to two servings so used bone pork chops, I set aside about half of marinade in covered custard cup added the water and nuked for 40 seconds on 60 power level. Served with sweet potatoes (dipped sauce into) and green beans. Thank you Teresa for a wonderful supper.
