  • 1.4 lb. pork tenderloin

Brown Sugar Garlic and Herb Mixture


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.

Brown Sugar, Garlic and Herb Mixture:

  • In a small plate prepare the herb mixture by mixing olive oil, chopped garlic, brown sugar, Herbs de Provence, Italian seasoning and salt.

Prepping Tenderloin:

  • Place the tenderloin in the oven safe dish, such as cast iron, dutch oven or on a baking sheet. Make 5-6 incisions across the tenderloin.
  • Stuff these incisions with Brown Sugar, Garlic and Herb Mixture. This will ensure that the amazing flavors of garlic, brown sugar and herbs will be spread throughout the tenderloin.
  • Using a pastry brush cover the tenderloin with the remaining mixture on top and all sides, except the bottom.

Roasting Tenderloin:

  • Roast at 350 F for approximately 30 minutes, until internal cooking temperature reaches at least 145 F (for pink looking tenderloin) or 160 F (for white looking tenderloin). Remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
