Thanksgiving Week: Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Not Your Ordinary Holiday Protein!

    • Medium


    I know you were probably expecting a Thanksgiving Turkey but that would be too predictable…plus I really like pork tenderloin 🙂

    To me, pork is the perfect pairing for a creamy potato dish and a tart yet sweet cranberry sauce. I call this my perfect holiday plate!

    All you need for this is an oven safe skillet and a piece of pork tenderloin or two…depending on how many people you are feeding.



    Get Your Oven Safe Skillet

    In an oven safe skillet, heat up 2 tbsp of olive oil. Allow the skillet to get hot. Season the pork tenderloin with salt & pepper on all sides then add to the hot skillet. Brown the tender loin on all sides on medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes with 2 sprigs of rosemary. Once the tenderloin is browned, transfer the skillet to a 400F oven for 15-20 minutes, turning the tenderloin once after about 10 minutes. After the 10 minute mark you can also remove the rosemary, it might burn otherwise.


    The internal temperature of the meat should be 155F. Allow the pork tenderloin to rest for 10-15 minutes in the skillet or on the cutting board before slicing it into rounds. As its name reveals...this pork is very tender, a melt in your mouth kind of meat.
