Periodically I get stuck in a rut. I tend to use an ingredient like crazy then totally forget it exists. I have been using a lot of chicken as of late and very little pork. After the delicious pork tacos the other day, I was reminded of just how awesome pork is. So here is another great recipe embracing the beauty of pork.


Onion Crusted Pork Tenderloin 

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add olive oil to an over-proof saute pan (I used a Dutch oven) over medium-high heat. In a saute pan, over medium-high heat and add butter, onion, garlic, and rosemary. Cook until onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Rinse the tenderloin and pat dry. Season liberally with salt and pepper and place pork in pan. Pour shallot mixture over the pork. Roast until a thermometer placed in the center of the meat registers 155 degrees, about 20 minutes. Remove the pork from oven and let rest in the pan for 5 minutes. Slice tenderloin and garnish with additional rosemary.
