Pork tenderloin is a very lean piece of meat and because of this, it’s very important to not overcook it or you will end up with chewy, leathery bites of meat. It is started stovetop in a cast iron skillet, then finished in the oven.
I buy my tenderloins from Trader Joe’s and they never let me down. The other main ingredient in preparing this is balsamic glaze. I like to make my own, but Trader Joe’s sell a delicious balsamic glaze that is made without sugar, which I like and I do keep a bottle in my pantry at all times because for when I don’t have time to make the glaze.
The tenderloin is coated in the balsamic glaze, fresh rosemary, salt and pepper then seared in the pan, then roasted. Extra balsamic glaze is drizzled over at the end, like a gravy.
Shortcut: You can find balsamic glaze in all groceries stores and it’s usually cheaper than the vinegar. Take some help from the store to save time reducing balsamic vinegar.
