Ingredients

2
pork tenderloins (about 3/4 lb each)
1
cup soft bread crumbs (about 1 1/2 slices bread)
1/4
cup chopped fresh parsley
2
tablespoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon fennel seed
1/4
teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Spray shallow roasting pan and rack with cooking spray. Place pork tenderloins on rack in pan.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Spoon herb mixture evenly over pork. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in the thickest part of pork. Cover pork loosely with foil.
  • 3 Bake 20 minutes; remove foil. Bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 155°F. Cover pork loosely with foil and let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and pork will be easier to carve.)
