Pork Tenderloin with Herb Crust

by Dinner Hero on January 23, 2013

I’ve discovered that most people like pork tenderloin.  It’s easy to cook and you can do so many different things with it.  Grill it.  Bake it.  Saute it.  It’s a real versatile piece of meat, I tell ya.

I really like this particular recipe because the pork turns out very juicy and is full of flavor.

Pork Tenderloin with Herb Crust
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 6

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh thyme or a mixture of equal amounts chopped fresh thyme, rosemary, and sage
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 boneless pork tenderloin

  1. Preheat oven to 400. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and horseradish; season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs, olive oil, herbs, and garlic; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper. Spread sour cream mixture on one side of pork; top with breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Place in oven; cook until desired doneness (we prefer our pork on the cool side, an instant-read thermometer inserted in center reads 137, about 30 minutes). Let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
