Pork Tenderloin

Pork Tenderloin With Lingonberry Sauce

Julia | The Yummy Bowl
This Pork tenderloin recipe is made in the oven, slightly browned, and made crisp on the skillet prior to keep all the juicy flavors inside the meat, exactly like a good cut of pork should taste like. A very easy recipe that is served with homemade lingonberry sauce to turn your dinner into a festive one.

  • 1 ½ lb pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon thyme dried
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika powder
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Meanwhile, prepare tenderloin. Trim off the fat (white part) with a large sharp knife.
  • Poke with a fork all over the tenderloin.
  • 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.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add pork tenderloin and cook on both sides until golden brown and slightly crispy outside (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 set timer for 8 minutes.
  • After 8 minutes of baking, flip the tenderloin and bake for an extra 8 minutes. To check the meat for doneness use a thermometer - the right temperature we are looking at is 150 F.
  • When meat ready, take out of the oven, and let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes. Use the same baking dish or transfer to a cutting board.
  • 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.
  • Done! You are ready to serve this yumminess!
