About the recipe for Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary

What tastes better than rosemary with pork? Add some garlic, salt, and pepper and you have a tasty meal for dinner. This is an easy and great-tasting pork tenderloin seasoned with garlic and rosemary. Roasted carrots and asparagus make good side dishes to complete this relatively quick and easy meal. This recipe has all of the comfort food goodness that brings the whole family together. Is there anything quite like pork roast? The way it melts in your mouth after spending time in the oven and filling your house with the most delicious aroma. The day I made this, my husband came home and said he could smell this Rosemary Garlic Pork Roast from outside. Well, maybe he likes a lot what I prepare every time, he knows I don’t like to make the same meal every day and maybe he’s in love with my style… who knows :D… Anyway, back to the pork with rosemary, you should try this recipe and don’t be afraid because it has few ingredients. Trust me, it will “rock your taste buds“!



What if I’m changing my mind halfway.. what then?

If you change your mind regarding this recipe, I have a solution for you. You can transform this recipe into teriyaki pork tenderloin, an Asian meal that will tickle your taste buds. To transform it, you will need to have more ingredients in your kitchen, therefore, when it is shopping time, buy the ingredients for both dishes, not only for one of them. This recipe is simple, the teriyaki one is a bit more complex… you choose which one you’ll like.



Do you cover pork tenderloin when roasting?

Normally, some of my recipes specify for cover the meat when roasting, but Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary doesn’t need to be covered. Because you need the meat to be roasted on the outside and pinky in the middle, the best option is to cook uncovered.



Can I marinate the meat for 24h before?

If you want to marinate pork, it is better to go for teriyaki recipe instead of this one.  Pork tenderloin with rosemary is the quicker version of the teriyaki tenderloin. But, the answer is still yes, you can marinate pork 24h before if you want to, but it is an unnecessary additional step.



Notes and Tips

  • Essential Equipment: For the most efficient way to make this dish to be the best it can, you need a baking pan, such as an 8-inch square or 11 × 7-inch rectangles.
