Charmaine Rone, a reader from Redwood City, California, created this when she couldn't find a quick, easy, and delicious recipe for cooking pork tenderloin. We cut the tenderloin in half so it fits easily in a frying pan and cooks even faster.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Cut pork tenderloin in half crosswise. Mix garlic, rosemary, cumin, salt, and pepper and rub mixture all over pork.

Step 2

Heat oil in a medium ovenproof frying pan over high heat. Add pork and cook, turning as needed, until outside is completely seared, about 3 minutes total.

Step 3

Put pan in oven and roast pork until done the way you like, about 10 minutes for medium (150° on an instant-read thermometer). Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

Great easy recipe. I doubled it and made it for a dinner party. Make sure to tent for 10 min for the best results.

Very nice recipe. Simple and easy and really tasty. I found that I needed to bake longer than 10 minutes to get it throroughly cooked, but I suppose that's mostly a matter of taste. Delicious!
