A mixture of herbs and spices turns this pork tenderloin into a stellar centerpiece of any dinner table. For variety, try seasoning your pork loin with oils (such as roasted red pepper-olive oil or garlic olive oil) and a variety of herbs and spices (such as parsley, rosemary, onion powder, and cumin) for a flavorful roasted pork loin.
*Note: If you’re using fresh herbs, substitute 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs for every teaspoon of dried herbs.
- Cooking spray
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme*
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 pounds lean pork tenderloin
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray. Combine the thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
Rub the olive oil all over the pork. Sprinkle the herb mixture all over the pork and transfer to the roasting pan. Roast in the oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reads 160 degrees, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing crosswise into thin slices.
