Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins
  • 3 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tsp dried Mexican oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 Tbsp butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In small bowl or a cup mix all dry ingredients such as onion powder, garlic powder, ground black pepper, dried oregano, coriander and salt. Rub the seasoning mix all over the tenderloins, ensuring that no spots are left unseasoned. Place tenderloins in a zip-lock back, close and refrigerate for 8-10 hours. If you are in a rush, you may skip the refrigeration, but tenderloins will be much more flavorful if you let them marinate in seasoning. Try not to skip this step.
  • Put tenderloins and 2 tablespoons of butter in the roasting pan and cook for about 22-25 minutes, until internal temperature in the middle of the thickest part reaches 145 F. About 12 minutes into the baking, brush the tenderloins with the melted butter from the roasting pan. This will help keep the surface of the meat from drying out and give the bark it's nice golden color.
