Pork Tenderloin

Our pork tenderloin is so fragrant & flavorful thanks to the unique blend of seasonings. Crispy on the outside & juicy on the inside. We served ours with some roasted butternut squash, cinnamon applesauce, and a salad. This is favorite pork dish of Jack & Gary (hubbies).

Servings: 6-8


  • 2, 1-2 lb. pork tenderloins (Hormel® comes 2 to a package)
  • 1 Tablespoon EVOO
  • 3 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F and lightly grease a roasting pan.
  2. Pierce the tenderloin with a fork over the entire piece.
  3. Rub EVOO over all sides of meat.
  4. In a separate bowl mix Italian seasoning, garlic powder, cumin, salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, & black pepper.
  5. Sprinkle mixture over the tenderloin, patting it onto the surface of all sides.
  6. Place in a prepared roasting pan & drizzle the orange juice over the top.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until outside is lightly browned.
  8. Turn oven temperature to broil at 500°F  for 4-5 minutes to crisp outside of tenderloin, being careful not to burn.
  9. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  10. Plate onto a serving dish/platter & pour juices from the pan over the meat. Slice into 1-inch pieces.
  11. Spoon any remaining juice over sliced pieces or put a dollop of cinnamon flavored applesauce instead.
  12. Garnish with Parsley or Cilantro and serve.
