School is finally in session and life is starting to go back to a normal routine. My son was so excited to meet all of his school mates and his new teacher, that on the first day we had to be at school at 7:20 am and as soon as we crossed the school threshold he was gone with the wind. I was thrilled to see his excitement as he enter his class room and saw his name on his desk.
With back to school comes back to faster dinner time.
Pork Tenderloin is a versatile, tasty, extremely easy to prepare and so much fun to cook. Not only you can prepare it as it, or sliced thin for some tasty cutlets, but you can prepare any sauce on the side , and you will have a new dish.
I always remove the thin membrane around the pork tenderloin as well as some of the fat tissues. The more it is trimmed the less fat it will render. Patting the pork with a paper towel will fasten the cooking process. Also always have your meats at room temperature, it will cook faster and more even.
The pan seared pork loin was finished in the oven for 10 minutes to insure that it was completely cooked throughout, yet leaving the inside nice and moist.

Clean the tenderloins well and dry them. Season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over high heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot but not smoking add the tenderloins half, add all the herbs and cook well all sides.
Place in a hot oven and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes.
When done, remove from heat and let rest. Slice the pork into slices.
