Baked Pork Tenderloin with Garlic

Here's a recipe to try that goes well with Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Cheesy Corn and Macaroni Casserole.

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1.5 pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, ginger, thyme, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the seasonings over the tenderloin, and then rub the seasoning over all sides of the meat, pressing gently so that it adheres to the meat. 

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for one minute. Sear tenderloin on both sides, then transfer the meat to a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice and serve. Serves 4-6.
