Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary and Garlic

Rosemary is one of the stronger flavored herbs, so just wrapping the sprigs in foil with the meat allows the flavor to permeate the pork.

Oxmoor House JULY 2010

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces)


  • 2 (3/4-pound) pork tenderloins
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 rosemary sprigs
  • Rosemary sprigs (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400°.
