Easy Pork Tenderloin From Scratch

Assemble ingredients: pork tenderloin, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, dried thyme, smoked paprika, olive oil, lemon or lime juice.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together all spices and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Pour the mixture over the pork and rub to coat evenly.

Sear on a pan until both sides are golden brown and slightly crispy (cooking this way will ensure that all meat juices remain inside the meat). About 5-6 minutes.

Transfer to a baking dish or sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8 minutes at 400 F.  After 8 minutes flip the meat over and bake again for 8 minutes.

Check the meat for doneness using a thermometer -meat is ready when it reaches 150 F. After baking, let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes.

For serving slice the meat to desired thickness and place in a sharing dish or individual plates. Pour over some homemade lingonberry sauce, barbecue sauce or cranberry sauce.
