Only four ingredients give pork tenderloin outstanding flavor in this dish. Serve with sweet potatoes and sautéed spinach for a dinner that's ready in less than an hour.
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Remove pork from bag. Place pork on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155°. Cover loosely with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Super easy and delicious. I followed the recipe for the seasonings but cooked it in the microwave in my Pampered Chef covered baker in 7 and 1/2 minutes. Came out super moist. I will be making this often.
I didn't measure the sage or the maple syrup. I probably used 1 Tbsp of sage and 1/4 cup maple syrup. The pork came out super moist. It had a very nice maple and sage flavor. I served it with roasted brussel sprouts tossed with sage. Great for a weeknight meal, but could be dressed up for a nicer occassion. Would definitely make again.
Quick easy and delicious - but next time I'll marinate the pork a bit longer as I felt the maple flavor wasn't quite strong enough to balance the sage. The family loved it though and we'll definitely make this one again.
I can't believe this was rated a 5. It lacked flavor and it was not pretty. I ended up brushing it with more maple syrup to give it a little lift. That really didn't help. I definitely will not be making this again. If I were to make it again, I would marinate it longer and brown it before roasting. That might help. However, it was easy.
pretty boring - there are much better tenderloin recipes out there. I am sure it would be better on the grill, but as it was it didn't brown and took longer to cook (although I did have a lot of stuff in the oven.) It did not have much flavor.
I'm not wild about pork, but my Dad is. I decided to make this for him and it was excellent. My dad also LOVED it! I followed the recipe exactly--don't forget to tent the foil at the end. The meat was very juicy.
