Ingredients

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt

1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In separate bowl mix dry ingredients such as garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, thyme and salt. Stir mixture with a fork until all the ingredients are well combined and they form a seasoning. This will be used as a rub to ensure the pork is well seasoned throughout. Sprinkle the rub over the tenderloin with a dry hand, then rub the pork with the seasoning over both sides of the meat, pressing gently so the seasoning adheres well to the tenderloin.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and heat. Add the minced garlic and saute, stirring, for 1 minute. Put tenderloin in the pan and cook for about 10 minutes, searing each side using tongs to turn the meat. Transfer meat to a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.

Here's a tip to avoid burning the garlic.  Add a couple of whole  garlic cloves to the olive oil while heating the searing pan. Remove the garlic after a minute or two. The garlic will infuse the olive oil without burning.  If I have time, I sometimes pour some olive oil into a bowl with the garlic while waiting for the pan to heat up.  Again, the key is to remove the garlic from the heated searing pan after a minute or two.  Otherwise, a great recipe!
