Herbed Pork Loin

November is National Blog Posting month (Na Blo Po Mo). The various blog platforms challenge bloggers to write a post every single day for the month of November. That would be amazing but I don’t have 30 recipes ready for posting and it isn’t realistic to think I can get 30 recipes ready for posting in November. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t stretch and challenge myself. I have decided to double the number of posts I usually post for the month of November. According to my insights page I typically average 6 posts a month. For November, my goal is publish 12 posts.

Today I am going to start Na Blo Po Mo with a recipe for one of my favorite ingredients to cook with, pork loin. Pork loin is an incredibly versatile ingredient but my all time favorite way to cook it is with a simple spice rub and roasting it.

Herbed Pork Tenderloin

1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1 lb. pork tenderloin
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a shallow baking pan with cooking spray. Combine the spices in a small bowl; set aside. Rub olive oil all over the pork. Sprinkle the spice mixture all over the pork and transfer to the prepared pan. Roast until an instant read thermometer, inserted in the center of the pork, reads 160 degrees, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
