    Simple, flavorful way to cook pork tenderloin. Easy enough for weeknight meal. You can use fresh rosemary as a substitute when out of fresh sage. If your schedule allows, infuse more flavor by applying rub and let sit in a covered, glass baking dish overnight in the fridge. The key is to not overcook the pork. Use an instant read thermometer to gauge when pork is cooked. I check the pork after it's cooked for 10 minutes in the oven to avoid overcooking then, adjust cooking time as necessary.

      I roast pork tenderloin quite a lot. Stewart reminds me of how simple it can be. I press w/spatula for a deeper sear over more surface, and in an oven pre-heated iron pan moved onto a flame, but Stewart evidently gets good browning results simply turning on a pan. Yes, as Sprout writes, other herbs can be substituted, and dry or wet rub overnight gives more flavor - poking herbs/marinade into tenderloin. Yes, not overcooking is key - you want it juicy and a little pink inside. Takes about 10 min for me - I guess because of pre-heated pan and starting meat after it's been out half hour or so. Take out temp: Cooks Magazine somewhere said take out and tent under aluminum at 135, and that has worked for me.

    I agree about mincing the garlic very fine to keep it from burning. Big flavor and a good way to cook a tenderloin.

    Big hit at a pot luck. I think mincing the garlic really fine, to a paste is important so that is doesn't burn while searing. I also added a bit of white wine to the pan before I placed it in the oven.

    Big hit! Made this for a get together of 5 people. Prep was easy and let me focus on making the side dishes as it cooked.

    This was really easy and good. I followed the directions for searing and how long to cook it and it turned out great. I used rosemary instead of sage from my herb garden and added some dijon mustard as well...yummy!

    Delicious recipe, bonus that it's quick and easy, especially if using pre-chopped garlic.
