Pork Tenderloin

  • Heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet, over medium to high heat. Brown the pork tenderloin pieces on each side. Place the entire skillet in the preheated oven (450 degrees F) for about 20-22 minutes, or until the pork has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  • Let the pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with the potatoes and vegetables.


Don't overcook the pork. Pork is okay to have a little pink in the center.
