Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Pork tenderloin 10 ounces
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Cooking spray
Garlic, chopped 4 cloves
Fresh rosemary 1 sprig

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  4. Transfer pork to a roasting pan (or leave in skillet, if it is ovenproof) and roast in oven until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 155ºF, about 25-35 minutes.
  5. Take pork out of oven, transfer to platter, and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
