Simple Pork Tenderloin

Simple Pork TenderloinMy father found an amazing prime rib seasoning years ago called Snider’s. I can never find it in the grocery stores here in Portland, so he always loads me up whenever I run out (thanks dad). This rub isn’t just for prime rib. I love this seasoning on pork, beef and especially on ribs. I had a pork tenderloin to make and decided to keep it really simple. I seasoned the tenderloin with Snider’s and extra black pepper. Seared it on all sides then finished cooking it in the oven. The meat was flavorful, tender and juicy. I love simple recipes like this! I served this pork tenderloin with my favorite Baked Potato and Roasted Grape Tomatoes.

  • 1 pork tenderloin, silver skin removed
  • Snider’s prime rib rub, to taste (or your favorite seasoning mix)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil

Simple Pork Tenderloin

Remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin then season the entire piece of meat with Snider’s prime rib rub (or your favorite seasoning mix) and black pepper.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Heat olive oil in large oven proof skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork tenderloin and cook until brown on all sides, turning occasionally, about 5-6 minutes. Place the skillet into the oven, and bake for 15 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 155-160 degrees (medium) or desired degree of doneness. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy.

    Hi again Pam. I just saw your rub at Thriftway. I wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't just read your post. I'm looking forward to trying it. I do a lot of grilling in the better weather and it sounds great.

    This looks scrummy, I will have to look out for Snider's in the store – but knowing our supermarket, I'm not optimistic.

    This is how I make my pork tenderloin too! I use the McCormick's garlic chicken seasoning – it's very good too.

    I love pork tenderloin and a sear/roast is always the way to go. Yours looks excellent!

    I pull mine at 145-150f before resting.

    I really love pork tenderloin. I usually have it just with some veggies or salad, then it is a rather light meal.
    If you are interested in an exotic variation, try this Pork tenderloin with Sesame Ginger Sauce
