Roasted pork tenderloin is is an excellent choice for a quick cooked dinner. I have several recipes that I use to open roast tender, juicy pork tenderloin in about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the tenderloin used.

As always I rely on my meat thermometer to know when the meat is fully cooked. Anything above 145 degrees F as an internal cooked temperature is considered safe although I prefer it a little more well done and take it to 160 or so.

The most important thing is to let the meat rest for about 5 minutes before cutting. The meat continues to cook after coming out of the oven and this resting time allows the natural juices to redistribute throughout the meat making it more moist.

Cutting any roasted meat too quickly can result in a dry finished product, including this Almond Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin . Never cut any meat straight out of the oven.

Roasting pork tenderloin can also be done at quite a high temperature which along with its small size allows it to cook so quickly. This time we tried it with an almond crust herb crust and it was delicious.

With an amazing easy meal like this which takes so little time, maybe you should invite someone over for dinner in the middle of the week.
