I keep a pork tenderloin in my freezer at all times. It’s very flexible to work with, you can season it, make it plain, ‘dress it up it to be fancy’… whatever mood you’re in the pork tenderloin will rise to the occasion. Oh and in a nice high oven it cooks in 12 minutes… hello-weeknight-wonderful!
Time: Total time for this, depending on which flavor option you choose and the size of your tenderloin, is typically 15 – 20 minutes.
Serves: 4 – 5. This typically serves my family of four people (2 grownups, 2 kids) 1 time, every once in a while a little is left over.
Kid modifications: Even with the BBQ dry rub, which I use often it’s not ‘so spicy’ it’s problematic. If your kids are sensitive to seasonings, slice a small piece into cubes and serve the ‘interior’ pieces (i.e. give the ‘outer’ layer with the seasoning on it to someone else). seasoned pork tenderloin, sear over high heat in the pan before putting in the oven. This would also be great with salt and pepper to taste.
