Paprika Pork Tenderloin

Not too long ago, I shared a new take on Texas (or cowboy) caviar.  When I made it, I served it alongside some pork tenderloin.  This pork is so tasty and the seasoned rub is super simple.

You will need:
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 16 ounces)
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (if you feel adventurous... which I typically do not)
Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil and preheat the oven to 450.  Drizzle the tenderloin with olive oil- a light coating will do.  Mix up the seasoning in a small bowl, and pat the mixture all over the tenderloin. Then, simply bake until it is 145 degrees.  You can serve the pork hot or let it cool in the fridge to slice for sandwiches.  I think this would be GREAT with some cheesy rutabaga mashed potatoes...

  1. I haven't made pork tenderloin ever. My mom used to make it but I never tried it. I've done pork chops but they were always too chewy. Maybe I should try it again! Sometimes chicken and beef just gets old...
