Roasted Pork Fillet (Tenderloin)

As much as I like to cook a ‘recipe’, some nights call for something simpler.

And likely healthier.

Like a good green salad and a great piece of protein.

Pork Fillet is one of my favourites to do on the BBQ, in the pan or in the oven.

This quick rub for a roasted pork fillet is a wonderful one, especially where you’re trying to be healthy and avoiding a more sugary glaze you might do.

Going into summer, I’m all for rubs and marinades. I reckon this roasted pork fillet will definitely get another run.

Ingredients

1 pork fillet (tenderloin), about 600gm
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly cracked pepper
1 tsp mixed herbs (dry: sage, rosemary, oregano, basil, thyme, marjoram)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Dry the pork fillet, pierce the pork all over with a fork and rub 1tbsp of the olive oil all over.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients to make the rub. Rub all over the pork and allow to sit.
  3. Heat the oven to 180c.
  4. In an ovenproof pan, heat the remaining 1tbsp of olive oil over a medium-high heat.
  5. Seal each side of the pork until golden; around a minute or two each side. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for around 15 minutes or until the centre of the pork registers 65c.
  6. Enjoy.
