Herb roasted pork tenderloin


Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin  is often forgotten as a roast, but it is delicious.  This recipe combines herbs and tender pork loin to make a tasty entree.  I buy my tenderloins at Costco great price and they have always been great. The tenderloin’s come in packs of 2 and I usually roast two together.  You can also make with one tenderloin of course just reduce the cooking time.


Serves 6

  • Two pork loins, tied together
  • ½ cup of Olive Oil
  • 1 large spoon of crushed garlic
  • Chopped sage (or sage leaves if you cannot get fresh)
  • 2 tsps oregano
  • I sprig of Rosemary chopped
  • 1 Tsp of English mustard if you can find it.

Chicken Parmigiana in 20 minutes

I know we have extra time on our hands with this lock down but conference calls, kids schooling, home working and keeping up with 25 group chats on Whats App is still time consuming. Even if you do not normally cook this recipe is very easy to make. I make this recipe in about 20 minutes and its delicious. If you do not want to waste your bread on breadcrumbs the shops do seem to have a small supply of pre-prepared breadcrumbs and I used those for this recipe. I rarely follow a recipe I have been cooking since I was 12.… Read the rest

My blog is based on two of my greatest passions next to my family, cooking and travelling.  I have always wanted to share all the recipes I have developed over the years and tales of my worldwide travels.  I have never had the time until the lockdown2020.  I am making the most of the imposed quarantine and loving it. Not the quarantine the blogging.    I am a home cook not a professional so all my recipes were made in my own kitchen for my family.  I hope you enjoy!
