But honestly, this pork tenderloin is just so easy, and so good, it has become my go to. Make this mouth watering pork tenderloin recipe on a night when you are starving for a truly filling and scrumptious dish.
How Do You Cook Pork Tenderloin In The Oven?
Pork tenderloin can be such a flavorful and filling meal. It can be cooked in the oven a couple different ways.
You can sear it first or put it directly in a pan in the oven.
I highly recommend searing your pork tenderloin before cooking it in the oven.
2 Important Reasons Why You Should Sear Your Pork Tenderloin First:
- Searing brings out the flavor and seals in the juices
- Searing adds a caramelized crispy finish to your meat
For this Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Veggies recipe I brown or sear the tenderloin first.
I cook the meat in a pan on the stove in a tablespoon of olive over medium-high heat, making sure each side gets cooked. I brown the meat for about six minutes.
Then, I proceed to bake the pork tenderloin in a preheated oven set to 400 degrees.
For this pork tenderloin recipe I bake the pork for about 15-20 minutes.
Whether you cook your meat at 400 or 350 or even 325, either way you want to make sure your meat has reached an internal temperature of about 150 degrees before taking it out.
Once the pork tenderloin has reached the desired internal temperature, I let the pork tenderloin rest for about ten minutes before serving.
Be patient on this last step. I know that there is a tendency to want to dig right into your meal once it is out of the oven.
Believe me, once you smell the savory aromas coming out of that pan, you are going to want to dig right in, but resist the urge.
Let the pork tenderloin rest so you can get the most flavor out of your dish. Allowing your pork tenderloin to sit will produce an even more flavorful tenderloin.
How to cook pork tenderloin will depend on personal preference a little bit.
I personally think that 400 degree temperature is a good temperature for pork tenderloin. It is already a tender cut of pork so you actually don’t want to spend all day slow cooking it.
However, you can adjust the cooking temperature based on personal preference, of course.
How Long Does It Take To Cook Pork Tenderloin At 425?
If you are increasing the heat, then typically the time spent cooking will decrease. If you are decreasing the heat, then time should increase, given that you haven’t changed the size of the meat.
If you choose to cook your pork tenderloin in a preheated oven set at 425 degrees, then plan on the pork tenderloin cooking for about 10-15 minutes.
However, remember regardless of the suggested time frame, check and make sure the internal temperature of the meat is at about 150 degrees before taking it out. This will give a medium cook on your meat.
If meat is too rare, it can be unhealthy to eat.
How Long Do You Cook Pork Tenderloin In The Oven?
One of the many things that I love about pork tenderloin is that you don’t have to wait for it all day to cook. In fact, for the best cook for this particular cut of meat, it’s better if you don’t cook it all day in a slow cooker.
Different factors though will make cooking times vary.
Factors That Affect Cooking Times:
- Size of the tenderloin
- Cooking temperature
- Desired internal temperature (typically is about 150)
For this pork tenderloin recipe, as already mentioned, you will cook the pork tenderloin for about 15-20 minutes.
If you are looking to adapt cooking temperatures, a good rule of thumb is to cook pork tenderloin 25 minutes for each pound when cooking at a temperature of 325 degrees. Obviously this time increment will slightly vary if the cooking temperature is different.
What Is The Best Way To Cook Pork Tenderloin?
I love how the pork tenderloin comes out in this Sheet Pan Pork and Roasted Veggies recipe.
Searing the pork tenderloin first provides additional flavor to the cut of the meat and provides a beautifully caramelized coating to the tenderloin.
Then placing the pork tenderloin in the oven to finish off the cooking and giving it a nice roast on it is the best way to cook tenderloin, in my opinion.
You can slow cook the pork tenderloin, but that is not my favorite method with this cut of meat.
This meat is already tender and slow cooking it does not make the pork tenderloin more tender.
Just throw your pork tenderloin in the skillet for just a few moments and then transfer it in a pan in the oven.
Then just sit back and enjoy the fragrant smells that will permeate your home while you anxiously await this fabulous meal to be ready.
Is Pork Keto-Friendly?
Yes! Pork is definitely considered a keto approved meat. Pretty much all meat is keto friendly.
So enjoy and serve yourself up some delicious pork tenderloin.
Here is the thing that you have to be careful with when selecting meat dishes for a keto friendly diet. The meat may be keto approved, but the sauces, marinades, or sides may not.
So although you may pick a meal where the meat is the hero of the dish, it does not always mean that the dish as a whole is free from sabotaging you on a low carb diet.
Make sure to check all the ingredients in the recipe. There are plenty of dishes that are keto friendly or if not can be adapted to meet your keto needs.
You are definitely off to a good start though with pork because pork on its own is definitely a keto friendly dish.
