    This is a simple pork loin recipe, and can be prepared in as little as 10 minutes.

    Prep time: 10-15min
    Cooking time: 45 min

    Ingredients:
    Serves 4
    – 1 kg pork loin
    – 2 tbsp olive oil
    – 4 tbsp fresh rosemary
    – salt and pepper
    – 4 – 8 potatoes (4 large, 8 medium). Can be any type.

    Preheat oven to 350F.

    Scrub and wash potatoes. Peeling them is optional, it depends on the kind of potato you choose, and if you like the skin or not. Cut into 1″ cubes or slightly smaller. In a bowl, add tbsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp of fresh rosemary, and mix well. Place potatoes on a baking sheet, leaving space for the pork tenderloin which you will add later. Put baking sheet in oven, and set timer for 15 min.

    Place the pork tenderloin on a plate. Using a brush, spread remaining olive oil on the tenderloin. Sprinkle with salt and peper, and add remaning rosemary. When 15 min timer goes off, add to baking sheet with the potatoes. Place cooking sheet in oven and set timer for 15 min again. When timer goes off, remove the baking sheet, flip the potatoes and the pork tenderloin, and place in oven for another 15 min.

    Keep an eye on the pork tenderloin, and make sure to remove it when it is finished. If you do not know how to tell, the best option is to us a meat thermometer and take it out at the desired doneness.

    Enjoy!

    Here is a list of my very favorite pork tenderloin recipes:

    This is my favorite pork recipe of all time. It is sweet, tangy, and the pork is tender and juicy.

    Ingredients (serves 2):
    – 1 pork tenderloin
    – 2 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
    – 1/2 cup of dijon mustard
    – 1/2 cup maple syrup
    – 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
    – 1 tbsp butter

    In a small bowl, mix mustard, 1/4 cup of maple syrup, and rosemary. Add pork tenderloin to a roasting pan. Smother with sauce, and put in an oven that has been pre-heated to 350F. Meanwhile, add butter to a frying pan and melt on medium heat. Add the rest of the maple syrup and the apples. Sautee until easily pierced by a fork. Turn of heat.

    Once the pork loin is finished, usually about 30 minutes, remove from oven. Serve with apples on top, and any side, although this dish goes perfectly with rice.
