Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Green Beans, Scalloped Potatoes, and Potato Rolls

 

Herbed Crusted Pork Roast 006

 

 

Quite a meal tonight, to cap off a beautiful sunny day outside today! I prepared a Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Green Beans, Scalloped Potatoes, and Potato Rolls. I used my favorite Pork Roast recipe, the Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin. I just love the Crust that the Herbs, Garlic, and Olive Oil create on the Roast and the flavor along with keeping it nice juicy on the inside.

To prepare the Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin I preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Then combined 2 tablespoons olive oil, 4 cloves garlic, minced, 1 teaspoon dried thyme , 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, along with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper for seasoning. Combine all the ingredients except the Salt and Pepper in a bowl and stir until well mixed. You then rub into your Pork Roast which will create the Herb Crust as it bakes. Roast the pork for 30 minutes on 450, then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for an additional 15 – 20 minutes (time will vary according to the size of the roast). 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 10 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. The Pork comes out perfect! The Herb Crust gives that extra taste to make it one delicious Roast! Love this recipe.

For side dishes tonight we had Green Beans, Idahoan Scalloped Potatoes, and Baked Split Top Potato Rolls. My Mom prepared the Green Beans. She was at Jungle Jim’s Market and they had just put out a large order of Green Beans. She bought a large amount and made a huge pot of them tonight. The first official fresh Green Beans were fantastic! Sometimes early in the year the Green Beans aren’t quite as good as they are later in the year but these were really delicious! The Idahoan Scalloped Potatoes are the easy and quick way for some Scalloped Potatoes. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 160 calories and 20 carbs. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla/Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
