Nutritional Info: 187.3 calories, 5.5 g of fat, .3 g carbohydrates, 0 g dietary fiber, 32 g of protein
2-3 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat
1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs, such as a combination of thyme, sage, and rosemary
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp peppercorns
1/4 cup chicken broth
1. Bring a saute pan to medium high heat and quickly sear the pork tenderloin on all sides. It will take about 1 minute for each side or until it is nicely browned.
2. Get out your heavy duty aluminum foil and place the pork loin in the center. Cover the top with the garlic, fresh herbs, salt, pepper, and peppercorns.
3. Add the chicken broth and fold to completely cover the pork loin, making sure all sides are tightly sealed. It is recommended to leave a meat thermometer sticking out so you can gauge the temperature. Place in a roasting pan or dish to catch any excess liquid.
4. Cook for 20-30 minutes per pound or until the meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve.
