Easy Pork Tenderloin

Welcome to the Mingle and Jingle Progressive Dinner Blog Hop!   If you are coming over from  Home on Poplar Creek I'm delighted you are here!  Nicole's tablescape was beautiful and full of inspiration.  My role in the progressive dinner is to share the main course.  I gotta let ya'll in on this little secret, the older I get the more I despise cooking...like I'd rather do anything but cook! Since I feel this way what I cook and serve to my family should be simple and easy to prepare.  I am not interested in a recipe that has 10 ingredients! HA!! That confession aside, I still want what I cook to be tasty and appealing.  
 My Easy Pork Tenderloin comes in as one of my family favorites.  It is delicious and only has 3 ingredients.
Olive Oil
Pork Tenderloin
Have you ever tried Char Crust or even heard of it?  This is not a sponsored post for CharCrust!  I use this on almost every meat I serve to my family.  In this recipe after removing the pork tenderlion from the package I rinse and pat dry with a paper towel.   For a small tenderloin I take about 2 tablespoons of the dry rub seasoning and place in a plate that will fit the tenderloin.  With a somewhat dry tenderloin roll the tenderloin in the seasonings.  When the meat is coated in the dry rub I place on a baking sheet.  Spritz or spoon maybe a tablespoon of olive oil onto the tenderloin.  This keeps the rub from burning.  Place the meat in the oven which is set to broil for about 5 minute to sear. After broiling, loosely cover with foil. Then bake at 350 degrees for an hour or until your roast is 145 degrees.  Let it rest for about 7 minutes then slice and serve!

Having served up the main course I'm sending you on your way to Shelly of Confetti Style for dessert.  She shared a teaser on her social media yesterday, I am certain it will be delicious!

A side story you might find funny!

Ages ago we were invited to be part of a progressive dinner.  It was an interesting experience and I wouldn't count that as a success. The first home we went to the girl had worked all day and had paid no attention to the instructions.  She had donuts instead of appetizers and everyone filled up on donuts.  As the night went on and we arrived at our house for whatever I was serving one of the children that had indulged in those donuts was sick....as in all over my bathroom.  Needless to say it was the end of the progressive meal!
