INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 30 -40 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • 2 pork tenderloins (approximately 1 -1.5 pounds each)
  • Vegetable mix:
  • 2 large carrots sliced
  • 1 – 2 red onion(s) quartered
  • 1 parsnip sliced
  • 1 turnip sliced
  • 1 large zucchini sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • For dry rub:
  • 2 tbsp. freshly ground dark coffee
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • For vegetable sauce:
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • pinch each of oregano, garlic, and salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Mix The dry rub ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Rub the dry rub on both sides of each tenderloin.
  4. Tightly wrap the tenderloins in plastic wrap. This will help the meat to absorb the dry rub. Let the wrapped meat rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  5. Combine all ingredients in the vegetable mix in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.
  6. Coat a small roasting pan (spray, butter, or margarine). Unwrap the tenderloins and place them fat side up in the pan. Surround with the vegetables.
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until the pork reaches 145 F.
  8. Remove the pork from the pan, cover, and place on a cutting board.
  9. Let the meat stand (at least 3 minutes), then slice.
  10. In a small bowl combine veggies, pan drippings, and the vegetable sauce, and mix thoroughly.
  11. Either spoon the vegetables onto a serving plate with the pork, or serve separately, and enjoy!
