Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 475°.
  2. Combine the rosemary and garlic. Make several 1/2-inch-deep slits in pork; place about half of rosemary mixture in slits. Rub pork with remaining rosemary mixture; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place pork on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Insert a meat thermometer into thickest portion of pork.
  3. Bake at 475° for 20 minutes or until the thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink) or desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
Note:

Strip rosemary leaves by running your fingertips along the stem in the opposite direction from which the leaves grow.
