Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Breadcrumb Crust

Serves 6 to 8

I love pork tenderloin and this recipe is a quick, easy, healthy and tasty example for a busy weeknight or special occasion. The recipe can easily be halved.


Preheat oven to 450°. Combine the breadcrumbs, cheese, garlic, thyme, sage, rosemary and some pepper in a shallow dish. Rub the pork with the mustard and dredge in breadcrumb mixture, patting with hands so it will adhere. Place the pork on a foil-lined baking sheet coated lightly with cooking spray or olive oil. Drizzle the tops with oil. Bake for 25 minutes or until an instant read thermometer registers 145°. Remove from the oven, cover lightly with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut crosswise into about 1/2-inch thick slices and serve immediately.

Notes: Please do not overcook pork tenderloin. It will become dry, tough and tasteless. The temperature will continue to rise as it rests under the foil. Leftover tenderloin is very good in sandwiches.
