How to Make Baked Pork Tenderloin?

To make easy baked pork tenderloin that melts in your mouth, get all the ingredients ready.

Season well the meat, pan sear it in olive oil and then bake until perfection is reached. The secret of making perfect roasted pork is to make sure it’s not overcooked.

According to the new guidelines, pork is safe to consume medium cooked (145 degrees) followed by a three-minute rest. You’ll get that with a pink tender and juicy middle!

Pork tenderloin is a relatively low-fat protein; therefore, it can dry out quickly.

I put up a list of my top tips and tricks to make juicy pork every time:

  • Sear Before Baking – This way you’ll lock the pork juices inside while getting a perfect brown and crunchy texture.
  • Brush with the Juices from the pan while baking.
  • Use a Meat Thermometer to get an accurate reading of the internal temperature.
  • Let the meat rest before serving.
  • Try not the overcook. Pork tenderloin becomes very dry, extremely fast if overcooked. Remove the meat at 140-145F and let it rest covered in foil before serving.

Pork Tenderloin VS Pork Loin

I’m sure that you are wondering what’s the difference between pork tenderloin and pork loin.

The main difference it’s in their aspect – pork loin it a long and thin piece of meat while pork loin is larger. The best way to cook pork tenderloin is at high heat while pork loin needs to be cooked to low-moderate temperature.

They are both lean protein and come from the back of the pig.

Pork Loin is sold bone-in or boneless, and it’s usually a large piece of meat, around 3 lbs. Pork tenderloin is a muscle, it’s sold boneless, and each weighs about one pound.

How to Serve?

Serve this delicious pork tenderloin recipe alongside:

This is the perfect recipe for busy days, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser at a party.

Can I use Pork Loin instead of Pork Tenderloin?

In this recipe, I use Pork tenderloin, but it can be easily substituted with pork loin.

Follow the same cooking steps, adjust the seasoning quantity for the best flavors. Increase the baking time with additional 20-30 minutes. It depends on the thickness of your pork loin.

I suggest using a meat thermometer to be sure the meat is cooked through.

Only check the internal temperature and remove from heat when the desired doneness is reached.
