I made this yesterday for Sunday dinner. It is so easy to put together, but tastes like it took a lot more work. It is great for a company dinner or holiday.
When I make it for the two of us, I use one tenderloin and adjust the amount of potatoes so I have the right amount for two meals. I served it with a French Style Bean Salad.
Herb Roasted Tenderloin with Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp rosemary, crushed
- 2 tsp thyme, crushed
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 2 and ½ lbs red potatoes, quartered
- 2 whole pork tenderloins (3/4 – 1 lb each)
- Stir oil, garlic, and seasonings.
- Coat meat with 3 Tbsp of seasoning mixture.
- Place meat in large roasting pan.
- Toss potatoes with remaining seasoning mixture and arrange potatoes around meat in pan.
- Roast at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 155 degrees and juices run clear, stirring potatoes after 20 minutes.
- Broil on top rack of oven 5 minutes to brown.
- Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

About Sallie’s Favorite Comfort Food Recipes
These are recipes I have enjoyed throughout my life – as a child, as a young woman, and now as a wife and mom. I am sharing them because they taste good and are relatively easy to make. They only require basic ingredients that most women will be able to easily find and afford. I encourage you to use the best ingredients your can afford for the best results. It really does make a tremendous difference in the quality of the final product.
For example, I only use King Arthur Unbleached Flour for regular baking. After some inexplicable failed results at long-time favorites, I no longer use store brand butter for any baking. I only use Land O’Lakes. The difference is substantial and can mean the difference between a high quality end product and a mess.
And, please, if you do try one of my recipes and like it, come back and let me know in a comment. I truly do appreciate it when people do so!
