It sounded like a perfect combo to me from the start. Garlic? Butter? Pork? That’s a yes for me. As most of the recipes I post, this one is pretty easy! There are only a few ingredients, and the prep time is minimal. This makes it great meal for a weekday dinner in my opinion, or even for the weekend, if you’re not in the mood to spend the whole day in the kitchen. Either way, you’ll love this one!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Season all the sides of the tenderloin with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven. Add the pork and sear for 2 – 3 minutes on each side.

Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let it rest for at least 5 minutes. In the meantime, whisk together the butter, garlic, onion powder and parsley and heat it up.

Pour the garlic over the pork after it has rested for at least 5 minutes. Slice into 1 inch slices. Serve with sides of your choice.

Bon Appétit!
