We really enjoy trying new recipes on a regular basis. Some are "okay", enjoyed for the evening but not tried again. Others get added to the "second try with edits" pile, where we think about what tweaks would make it even better. There have even been a couple of attempts where we looked at each other and said "trash can?" Then there are the crowning jewels – the recipes that my husband requests be added to our regular rotation. This pork tenderloin recipe is one of those recipes. While I've made pork chops dozens of times, the first time I tried this recipe was my first-ever attempt at a pork loin. I'm not sure why I waited so long because the results were delicious! After the very first bite my husband declared that it was a keeper.
We have this at least once or twice per month and have yet to grow tired of it. Sometimes I also make a little pan sauce to drizzle over the top. I usually serve it with mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, or corn casserole.

I had never really liked any kind of pork besides pulled pork, but recently have gotten into tenderloin. I'm always looking for new recipes to make with it, so I'm happy I found this one!
