Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Red Potatoes, Glazed Mini Carrots, and Harvest Grain Bread

 

I had planned on having a Roasted Jennie – O Turkey Breast but Kroger or Meijer were out of stock on it. So on to plan B! I prepared a Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin. I preheated the oven to 475 degrees F. I placed the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan. I then combined Sea Salt, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Thyme, Rosemary, and Basil in a small bowl. Then with my fingers, massaged the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat. I roasted the pork for 30 minutes, make sure you have your stove overhead fan running as it start to smoke somewhat after about 20 minutes. I then reduced the heat to 425 degrees F and roasted it for an additional hour. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. then be ready to slice one delicious and juicy Pork Tenderloin!

For sides I prepared Roasted Red Potatoes and Honey Glazed Carrots.I love this Potato Dish! Red Potatoes, Turkey Bacon, and the seasoning all combined makes a great Potato recipe. The Glazed Carrot recipe is an easy one. The glaze has Honey, Dijon Mustard, and Canola Oil. I left the Pork Tenderloin, Glazed Carrots and the Red Potato full recipes at the end of the post. I also baked a Meijer Bakery Harvest Grain Bread Loaf.
