Perfect Pork Tenderloin


It took me a while to get the pork tenderloin right.  Like almost everything else, I had to keep it simple.  And when making this you have to use the meat thermometer!  It will prevent it from being overcooked and dry.  It will be perfect.

Perfect Pork Tenderloin


  • A package of lean pork tenderloin(usually when you open it they will be in two pieces)
  • EVOO
  • 1/2 cup of low sodium chicken broth
  • salt and pepper
  • Mrs. Dash Italian Medley (This is salt free and has great flavor.  I use it for  a lot of my favorite recipes)


  1. Pre-heat oven to bake 425.
  2. Drizzle pork with olive oil.
  3. Season all over with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle pork all over with a good amount of Mrs. Dash Italian Medley.
  5. Place pork on a baking sheet and bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Turn pork over and pour the chicken broth in the bottom of the pan.
  7. Continue to bake for 15- 20 minutes
    • (This can vary depending on the size of the piece of pork you are using.  Check temperature with meat thermometer.  That will let you know when it is done)
    • It should be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
  8. When done, remove from baking dish and let sit for five minutes.
  9. Slice as thin as you can.  After you slice it, return it to the baking dish with all the seasonings and toss to coat.

This is delicious served with any of the following:

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
