~Fantastic Foodie Fridays ~ Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned ~ Rub ~

With all that is going on with the Sock Hop & Reverse Raffle tomorrow I didn't have time to dig into my recipes and find the one that I was looking for.  So, I hope that this will do in it's place.  It got amazing reviews and everyone seemed to agree it was yummy!  Today started with a 5:30am wake up.  Fed the kids and got them ready to go to my girlfriend's house.  ( Thanks!   Sharon & George )  Ran a few more errands along the way, like picking up the Helium Tank that was donated by General Welding Supply Co. Huge Thank you to them for being so generous & for loading into the sport trac so that I didn't have to kill myself!  Dropped the kids off then I was on my way to the party center.  Got there & started to un load the truck.  Started to lay out how and where things were going to go.  About one o'clock other people started to show up to help with things.  So, by eight o'clock I was feeling much better about things and was ready to call it quits for the night.  Really exhausted & still have more to do in the morning... Managed to make 500 Jell-O shots with my friend Tina.  Have a feeling that tomorrow night is going to be lots of FUN!    

~ Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned Rub ~


  • 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


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
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.
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.
