Serving Size: Serves 2 Ingredients
  • 1 Garlic Clove (minced)
  • 2 T Parsley (minced)
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • Pinch Cayenne
  • 2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 T Breadcrumbs (plain)
  • 1 1/2 lbs Pork Tenderloin
  • Salt and Pepper
Directions
  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl combine your garlic, parsley, dijon, red wine vinegar, and a pinch of cayenne. Slowly pour your olive oil in while whisking to emulsify. Stir in your breadcrumbs until everything is fully incorporated.
  • Take your pork tenderloin and remove any fat or silverskin. Place the tenderloin in a baking sheet that has a resting rack on top (this allows the heat of the oven to circulate the enter piece of meat and cook evenly). Season all sides of the pork with salt and pepper generously.
  • With your hands, pat the breadcrumb mixture on to the top of the tenderloin, covering the whole top of the pork in an even layer of the breadcrumbs. Cook in the oven about 35 minutes (or until the internal temperature reads 145 degrees). Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
