Hello Sparkfamily, Dinner tonight...Take a peek!
2 lean boneless pork tenderloins (about 8 ounces each)
2 large garlic bulbs (or use 3 bulbs regular garlic)
1 1/2 tablespoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon plus 2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, roughly chopped
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425° and set a rack to the middle position.
Slice off enough of the tops of the whole garlic bulbs that all the cloves are partly exposed. Set the cloves on a sheet of aluminum foil and fold the sides up around them to form a loose pouch. Drizzle the cloves with 1 ½ tablespoons oil, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and the rosemary). Seal the packet, then transfer to the oven to roast directly on the rack next to the pork.
Set the tenderloins in a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Rub them with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. In a small bowl, stir together the coriander, pepper, and remaining 2 teaspoons of salt. Sprinkle this mixture over all sides of the tenderloins, then sprinkle them all over with the fresh thyme.
Transfer the pork to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 145°, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the pork and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes minutes while the garlic finishes cooking (it should be golden brown and soft when ready).
To serve, slice the pork to your desired thickness and arrange on a platter with fresh herbs and the roasted garlic. As you eat the pork, the garlic can be squeezed from its skin, forming a mild, creamy puree to be eaten as an accompaniment. Enjoy!
Thought Of The Day~
You think the only people who are people,
are the people who look and think like you.
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger,
you’ll learn things
you never knew you never knew!
Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:)
