This is a super easy pork tenderloin recipe that will please everyone and impress them as well. You can use this recipe for pork roast and chicken too with the same mouth watering outcome. I do mine in a dutch oven because it really locks in the moisture but an oven safe pan with a tight foil cover works great too.
1 Pork Tenderloin
1 teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon of Butter
1 Tablespoon of Oil of your choice
1 Sliced Onion
3 Cloves of Smashed Garlic (just whack it with the flat side of the knife to release flavor.)
1/4 Cup of Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup of Chicken Broth
Season the pork Tenderloin with the salt and pepper and set aside. Heat 1 Tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of oil in an ovenproof dutch oven or pan. When that starts to sizzle drop in the meat and brown on all sides and then remove from the pan. Add the stock and lemon juice to the pan and stir to get all the good bits off the bottom of the pan. Put the meat back in. Drop in the garlic and cover the top of the meat with the onions. Cover tightly and bake on 350 for about 45 minutes or until meat reaches a safe temperature which for pork is 145 rare, I go to 155 for tenderloin. Let the meat rest in the juices for ten minutes before slicing. I serve this with rice pilaf and a vegetable. Everyone raves about it and it only takes about 15 minutes to prep and put in the oven Enjoy!
