Do you feel like there are not enough meal ideas out there? Please tell me I am not alone on this one! The pressure is really on, Momma! Thank God for my husband’s help, I learned an unbelievably quick and easy pork tenderloin recipe.
As a busy mom, I always struggle with what dish to prepare. My kids are not the picky kind and they enjoy almost everything I make, but sadly I am not the best cook. My dish selection is so limited. I just stick to what I know my little family will appreciate. It may be plain and safe most of the time, but at least I know my kids will eat it.
Our family loves pasta dishes. My kids will devour all the pasta dishes you prepare. Spaghetti, stroganoff, macaroni and cheese, lasagna, penne, name it. They will devour it. However, I can’t just keep on feeding my little family pastas! Do you agree?
This pork tenderloin recipe has been done by a lot of great cooks out there, but I am confident that my version is by far the quickest and easiest to prepare. (*winks) Pork tenderloin is not difficult to find. It is widely available, even your local grocery store has it.
So, without further ado, here is my version of the quick and easy pork tenderloin recipe your family will love. Tell me what you think on the comment section below. I really would love to know.
- 1 pound pork tenderloin
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- ½ cup apricot preserves
- Preheat oven at 425° F.
- Cut three ¼ inch deep slashes on the pork tenderloin.
- Mix all dry ingredients and rub the mixed ingredients on the pork.
- Place pork tenderloin with the cut side up in a loaf pan.
- Pour the apricot preserves onto the pork making sure that it covers the whole top of the pork.
- Bake for 30 minutes.Serve with vegetables of your choice.
You can make sure that the pork is cooked thoroughly by checking its internal temperature with a meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer through the pork’s thickest part. It should register a reading between 145° to 150°F.
