Terri's Pork Tenderloin

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Pork
Difficulty: 5 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time:

  • 1 - Pork Tenderloin
  • Tsp 2 - Salt
  • Tsp 1/2 - Black Pepper
  • Tbl 1 - Buttter
  • 2 - Minced Garlic Cloves
  • Cup 1 - Crumbled Corn Bread
  • Tsp 1 - Finely Chopped Sage
  • Tbl 2 - Sage
  • - Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 425*. Pat pork dry & sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Heat oil in a 10’ skillet over high heat until hot, but not smoking. Brown pork, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.
Transfer pork to an oiled, shallow baking pan.
Add butter to skillet and cook garlic over moderate heat, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove pan from heat and stir in cornbread crumbs, sage, salt & pepper. Stir well, coating crumbs evenly with butter and spice mixture.
With your hands, spread mustard over tenderloin and pat half of seasoned crumbs onto mustard. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over the top. Try to pack as much on the tenderloin as you can.
Roast in middle of oven until thermometer inserted diagonally 2 inches into meat reads 140*. (10-15 minutes)
Check after 10 minutes; if crumbs are too dark, tent loosely with foil and continue cooking until meat reaches the correct temperature.
When meat is correct temperature, transfer to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil, and let stand 10 minutes to continue cooking.


Really yummy!
