BEST Baked Pork Tenderloin Recipe

BEST Baked Pork Tenderloin Recipe #BEST #Baked #Pork #Tenderloin #Recipe Chicken Recipes Healthy, Chicken Recipes Easy, Chicken Recipes Baked, There is nothing like baked pork tenderloin. It’s so easy to make and I feel like this is the easiest cut of pork to take on whatever flavors you fancy. In the slow cooker, the Instant Pot, on the grill, there is really no way to mess up a pork tenderloin. (Well, I’m sure there is, but not one that I’ve found yet!).

The best thing about baking a pork tenderloin though, is that crispy outside and juicy inside. While most people do eat with their eyes first, it’s when you taste the tenderloin that you will truly understand why I’m gaga for this recipe. Sink your teeth into that first bite, and you get a little crunch, then the juices from the pork itself, plus the actual juice you’ve used and the spices intermingling with it all, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason NOT to make this delicious dish.

When I’m creating a recipe, I tend to lean on oils, vinegars, and sauces for the “wet” ingredients with which to marinade, spoon over, or otherwise cook in. I tend to forget how great fruit juices are with pork. The citrus in the lemon, lime, or orange juices (or all three) acts as the acid in the mixture (much like vinegar does in other recipes), giving your meat those tangy (and slightly sweet) undertones. Plus, the acid helps the rest of the flavors seep into the meat, making it nice and juicy.

For the other spices, I didn’t get too crazy. Simple is best here. I mixed together a little Italian seasoning blend, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper — all items you probably already have in your spice drawer.
