Herbed Pork Tenderloin

Allison Hazell


This is the easiest recipe ever. Wonderful for a special dinner. I love making this for company because it takes no time and I can spend time with my guests and not in the kitchen. The tenderloin cuts with a fork and looks and tastes like you spent a lot of time preparing it. Beautiful with the apricot glaze/sauce.

How to Make Herbed Pork Tenderloin


  • 1Preheat oven to 425
  • 2Season tenderloins liberally with salt and pepper and then herb rub. I spread the herb mixture on a plate and firmly roll the tenderloins in it, covering the tenderloins completely. (you may have leftover herbs-save in plastic bag)
  • 3Places tenderloins in a large baking dish into preheated oven for 15-18 minutes. Do not overcook. Take out of oven and let rest for 10 minutes.
    Start the Apricot Sauce.
  • 4Apricot Sauce:
    Combine preserves,water and vinegar in a small pan and bring to a simmer.
  • 5Slice pork into thick slices and drizzle Apricot Sauce over.

    This is great with wild and brown rice with some of the sauce poured on the rice also.
