  • 2.5 pounds pork tenderloin (that’s probably two of them)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place a cast iron skillet or dutch oven over medium heat (make sure its oven safe).
  • Trim the fat/connective tissue from your pork, if it has any. Salt the outside of the pork (should be about 1-2 teaspoons).
  • Add oil to pan, and then pork. Brown for 4-5 minutes on the first side. Flip pork and roast in the oven until cooked to your desired doneness (medium is at 145-150 deg F), 15-20 minutes.
