This is our favorite baked pork tenderloin oven recipe. It requires zero marinating time! Piercing the tenderloin with a fork allows the seasoning to penetrate deeper and you don’t have to marinate the meat for hours. The quick prep makes this a perfect option for unexpected company or a hungry family.

Watch how to Cook Pork Tenderloin:


Pork tenderloin is also reasonably priced (we paid $18 for 4 tenderloins at Costco), and I think it’s just as satisfying as steak! If you haven’t tried it, you must! It’s also easy to double or triple the recipe to feed a crowd because it always disappears fast and leftovers taste just as good the next day sliced into sandwiches or served as a side. I’m confident this baked pork tenderloin will become a go-to family favorite for you.

Pork Tenderloin Ingredients:

You will create your dry rub for pork tenderloin with just salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and ground coriander. If you don’t have coriander, you can omit it and the recipe will still work. I love finding recipes where all of the ingredients are already in my pantry!

How to make Roasted Pork Tenderloin:

Prep: Preheat oven to 400˚F with the rack in the middle.
How To Remove Pork Tenderloin Silver Skin: Trim tenderloin of fat and any silver skin and pat dry with a paper towel.

How to prepare roasted pork tenderloin and removing silver skin from pork tenderloin

3. Heat 1 Tbsp oil over med-high heat in a large oven-safe pan (cast iron or a dutch oven will work). Once oil is hot, add pork and brown on all sides (6 minutes total).

4. Place in the oven and bake uncovered at 400˚F for 13-15 minutes, flipping the tenderloin over halfway through baking. Bake until center of pork registers 150˚F (I have let mine get to 160 and it’s still super tender) then transfer to a cutting board and let meat rest 5-10 min before slice into rings to serve. It doesn’t need a sauce, but it is also really good served with A1 or BBQ sauce.

What Color is Cooked Pork Tenderloin?

*The USDA now recommends letting the tenderloin get to 145˚F and letting it rest at least 3 minutes. With a perfect pork tenderloin temperature of 145˚F, the meat will still be slightly pink in the middle.

I highly recommend a digital (instant read) thermometer like this one will help you achieve the perfect doneness.

      November 30, 2020

      Hi Anna, I would check for doneness at the time specified in the recipe and add more time if needed. Make sure to roast them in the pan so they are not touching and air can move between them for even roasting.

    This is incredible, always wanted a au gratin potato recipe besides the boxed mix. This was so very delicious. Be careful with the salt to taste though, the cheese added a lot of salt so I was almost too salty. Thank you so much Natasha.

    So many good things to like about this recipe. ONE thing I would advise NOT doing is cooking at high heat using AVOCADO OIL. Avocado oil is best added to salads or finishing a sauce. . Heating an oil,…even a good healthy oil past its smoke point is very UNhealthy. Google it and let me know if you find out different. The rest of recipe is good. I skip the coriander. Just not a fan.

      Avo oil is ONE of the BEST high temp oils to use! It’s smoke point is 520F or 271C… If you’re searing meat at temps higher than 520F, it’d be cheaper to eat a briquette of charcoal! Olive oil or extra virgin olive oil is a no-no for high temps. I use Avo oil for everything and people, it’s safe for sautéing at higher temps.

      Hi Lori, we used a 1.5 lb tenderloin for this recipe so the 10 lb tenderloin will require more bake time. Without testing that myself it’s hard to say how long without testing it but yes, I would adjust the back time.

    If you follow the recipe exactly this is absolutely foolproof.
    I have never used coriander before and what it brings to the pork loin is *chef’s kiss*.

    My mother roasted pork tenderloin for years.
    Pork was covered with crushed garlic with salt and a must: MARJORAM!
    Slowly roasted for hours. Poked with a thin wooden stick to make sure it is not pink inside. And released juiced poured over to pork. Water, if there was very little juice in the pan. Browning was an absolute! Christmas without roasted pork was noy real!
    Sweet smell of marjoram and garlic filled the air.
    It is either Polish or Ukranian receipe.

    Hi Natasha

    This looks so delicious. I thought piercing the tenderloin all over would result in loss of the porks juices and hence toughen the meat which is so easy to do when cooking with pork.
    Apparently not? Can you please explain this?
    Many thanks

    I made your recipe and it was fabulous. I seasoned and browned the meat in a cast iron skillet as directed. The only variation was, once browned, I removed the meat from the cast iron skillet and deglazed the pan with a half cup of white wine then added 2T of butter to
    create a very flavorful sauce. I returned the meat to the sauce in cast iron skillet and placed it into the oven to bake as the recipe states. It was phenomenal.

    This is a GREAT recipe. We have 3 littles and tend to have pork tenderloin about once every two weeks. Always looking for new ways to cook. My husband loves to grill but when he’s working I need a go to recipe for roasting/baking/pan searing, to make my life easier. This is it! My 7 yr old daughter even said, “Mommy, this has the crust like it does on the grill” (which we love).

    Great job I can already smell the tenderloin. Just a little correction. Searing meat brings color and flavor but does not seal in the juices. I remember that from a class way back at the Culinary Institute of America.

    The best ( and most simple) recipe I have tried for pork tenderloin. Made it for family dinner last night. Everyone commented on how moist and tasty the dish was. Will be my go to recipe for tenderloin from now on. Thank you for sharing.

    What a wonderful recipe! Turned out perfect! The blend of spices was wonderful, and dinner was ready in 30 min!
    I seared in a cast iron pan and put it directly into the oven. I was concerned it would dry out being uncovered, but it turned out perfectly cooked and juicy! While the meat was resting, I roasted some asparagus, and the timing was perfect. Such a quick, simple meal, yet my family devoured it and had clean plates moreso than some of my fancier time consuming meals.

    I made this for the first time tonight, and it’s a winner! I didn’t have coriander so I used cumin. I also didn’t have a meat thermometer but no matter- it was in the oven for the entire 15 minutes and then I let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. It was definitely done but not overdone- the way pork should be. Thanks for another great recipe, Natasha! 😊

        Hi Debbie, I haven’t tried making it ahead of time, but if you do, you would probably need to bake longer if the meat has been chilled and definitely use an oven-safe thermometer to check for doneness.

    I’m not a pork enthusiast, but the rest of the family is. I bought a 1.25lb pork tenderloin at Trader Joe’s, and looked online for recipes. I found a couple, but yours stood out, due to the searing.
    I used slightly different spicing, but coriander being one of my favorite spices, of course it was used. I poked slits with a small paring knife. Next time, we’re going to try stuffing cloves of garlic in about half the slots.
    Before the Dutch oven went into the oven, I added about 12 oz quartered mushrooms, and will at least double that next time, as the liquid they made, combined with the meat juices, was tasty, and well, mushrooms!
    I roasted both sides for 6 min., but forgot to check the temperature, but I was aiming for 140F. I let the meat rest for about 5 min. in the Dutch oven, on the range. I knew the meat was still slowly cooking to be 145F.

    I can be a self-critical cook, but oh, was that roast tasty.
    Thank you for this recipe.

    Easy & Delicious! Will make again. For those who are watching their sodium, try half the amount (1/2 tsp). I might go even less next time because once you start reducing sodium, your taste buds are more sensitive to it. Also, kosher salt is a nice substitute for sea salt.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed that! You can transfer it to an oven-safe dish after searing, no problem! I have had several readers report great results transferring and then baking. If you wait to get it in the oven, it may affect the baking time, but if you get it in there right away, it shouldn’t need any modification in bake time.

    Can brown the pork roast ahead of time and bake later?

      Hi Adrienne, I haven’t tested that to advise. We enjoy it as fresh but it is possible. I would just cook it and reheat it later over low heat. Leftovers of this meat taste great, even after it’s been sliced. Here’s what one of our readers wrote: “The most tender pork I have ever prepared. My spices were parsley, sage, fresh rosemary and thyme with sea salt anf fresh ground pepper. Followed directions exactly and was the best tenderloin …. a bit pink in the center and so moist. Made a nice gravy by deglasing the pan drippings. Even leftovers after two days were still as tender and moist. My new favorite pork recipe. Delicious Natasha… thank you” I hope that helps.

        Were the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme in addition to the Italian seasoning and garlic powder, or instead of those 2? (yes, I’m hearing the S&G song now!). I ask because I have that gene that makes me DESPISE cilantro and I generally avoid coriander too…

          Hi, that would be if you were substituting Italian seasoning. You could omit the coriander and the recipe would still work out. I hope you love the pork tenderloin!

    Made this for the third time last night.

    A perfect, quick and soooooo juicy. The herb mix is great. My mom is not big on seasoning, but seems too really like this. Definitely wait 10 mins to cut, or be prepared for juice to go everywhere on the cutting board!

    The Tyson pre-packaged and seasoned loin fillets need lower cooking temps and longer cooking times since they’re not all that tender. Wonder if theyre really “meat-glue” assembled roasts. taste is OK but excessively salty and just need adjustments mentioned.

      Hi Mike, I’m not sure what you mean since these were not pre-seasoned, but just started with plain raw pork tenderloin.

      Hi Juneal, I think you’ll find what this reader wrote helpful & It does go great alone. “I have found a sauce that KILLS with this recipe: toss an onion in with the loin (and garlic, if you are so inclined). While the loin is resting, mix the pan juices with Dijon mustard to taste, black pepper, and about 1/2 of the roasted garlic and onions (the remaining half are a nice flavor accent garnish). Blend until smooth. If you wish to use the leftover pork for sandwiches, add mayo to the sauce and spread that on the bread (I use a baguette)”

    Incredible, I could not believe that I was able to cook something like this!

    I used smoked salt instead of regular.

    Full of flavor, melt-in-your-mouth tender.

    I know you like to say it’s “restaurant quality”. This is better!

    The seasoning is amazing, but for a slow cooker recipe, a different cut of pork will work better.
    Pork loin,pork butt,etc.
    Slow cooking needs a fattier meat, in my humble opinion. But the seasoning is amazing, no matter what!

    This was fabulous!! It had a ton of flavor and was very juicy!! I followed the recipe as is, but when I make it again, I will probably reduce the sea salt just a tiny bit. I thought 1tsp for this was too much (crazy, right!), but my husband thought it was perfect! I used a cast iron skillet and it really needs to sit for 2 min per side
    in the skillet in order to get that good crust to develop. This recipe is a keeper for sure!!!

    I’m following this to the letter, but after 16 minutes in the oven, it’s completely raw inside. What am I missing? It was completely thawed. I pierced it, oiled it, seared it, all of that. I don’t have a meat thermometer. Should it still be red? I can’t eat anything that red. I’m leaving it in to see what happens.

      Hi Terrie, keep in mind that pork can be slightly pink when it is cooked. I wonder if maybe your oven runs cold? Also, make sure you are placing it into a preheated oven. Unless a larger pork loin was used, I’m not sure why else it would be undercooked. I always err on the side of caution and cook a little over but that should be ample time. In any case, I always recommend using a meat thermometer to test meats for doneness.

    I followed the directions for the rub to the letter , we found it way too salty. Otherwise it was good, we ended up scraping off the crust. Will make this again, with 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
