Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Two pound pork tenderloins
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbspns honey
  • 2 Tbspns dijon
  • 2 tspns chopped fresh thyme (I used ½ tspn dried)
Instructions
  1. preheat over to 400 F
  2. cooking spray on pan
  3. put pork in pan and season with salt, pepper, and thyme
  4. whisk wet ingredients tog in small bowl, spoon mix over pork.
  5. roast until internal temp is 160 at thickest part, about 45 minutes, baste every 15 minutes or so
  6. let pork rest about 10 minutes before slicing

It was super-easy and delicious. As a bonus, I found that the Alexia brand sweet potato fries we like cook at the same temperature. (Note-we always have to cook them longer than the package suggests so they’re a little crispy.)

I line the pan with foil and a little cooking spray for fast clean up. They’re yummy, quick and nutritious.
Its also a bonus that they cook at the same oven temp. I get steamed when I need to do a roast and I want to do oven green-beans or some other side with a different cooking temp. If I had the choice I would go for a range with two small ovens so I would have more options.
I’m going to start a list of things we cook often in the oven and their temperatures and keep it on the inside door of a cupboard near the oven. We’ll see if that helps with meal-planning or not…
Alexia does lots of potato-type sides and breads. They’re a yummy treat. They’re at Target and Whole Foods and our local co-op.
The left-over pork was easily stored for two “morph” dinners- ┬ápork sloppy joes and pork fried rice.
5/5 stars, will make this again
