Pork tenderloin is easy to make and is relatively inexpensive. This cut of meat is also delicious cooked on the grill. The recipe below is seared in a sauté pan and then baked in the oven. I often serve pork tenderloin on my appetizer buffet. Cut the cooked tenderloin thin and serve on crostini with a spicy fruit salsa. (You can purchase premade habanero salsa in the market).
1 Pork Tenderloin
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Remove the pork tenderloin from the package. Dry with paper towels. Season well with Cajun seasoning, or any type of dry seasoning you prefer. In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot, but not smoking. Add the pork tenderloin and sear each side. Place the seared tenderloin on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 375 degree oven. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the pork tenderloin out of the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
