  • 1
    Heat the oven to 425°F. Spray an 8-inch square or 11x7-inch pan with the cooking spray.
  • 2
    Peel and crush the garlic in a garlic press. Sprinkle salt and pepper over all sides of the pork tenderloin. Rub the rosemary and garlic on all sides of pork. Place pork in the pan.

    Bake uncovered 20 to 30 minutes or until pork has a slight blush of pink in the center and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 160°F. Cut pork crosswise into thin slices.

Expert Tips

  • Garlic press
  • If you're having trouble getting the garlic and rosemary to stick to the tenderloin, rub a little olive oil on the tenderloin.
  • Some meat thermometers are too top-heavy to stand up in a pork tenderloin so try inserting it almost horizontally, or sideways, into the pork. Using an instant-read thermometer is another option but it isn't ovenproof and can't be left in the pork.
  • Crush garlic by placing the clove in a garlic press and pushing down on the handle. If you don't have a garlic press, finely chop the garlic with a chef knife.
  • When using dried rosemary, crumble the leaves in the palm of your hand to release more flavor before rubbing them over the pork.
