What does it say about Atlanta summer heat when it's too hot to go outside and light the grill and the cooler option is actually crank up the oven to 450 and heat up the kitchen? I just couldn't bring myself to go out and light the grill yesterday afternoon so it was oven roasted pork tenderloin for us.
Turns out - this recipe for smoky pork tenderloin is perfect for the grill AND the oven. I'm giving you my oven version of the recipe today and when the temperature drops to a more reasonable level, I'll repost the grilled version of this same recipe.
Smoky Pork Tenderloin
1 pound pork tenderloin
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 Tablespoons oil
1 large sweet potato
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 thyme springs
1 Tablespoon butter
Add browned pork to pan and roast another 10-15 minutes until internal temperature reaches 140.
Remove pork and let rest 10 minutes.
Remove potatoes and drizzle with half of the sauce.
Slice pork and drizzle with remaining sauce.
Keeping it simple for summer dinners. A dinner roll and a green salad was all that was needed to finish off this meal perfectly.
Stay cool out there friends and enjoy your summer.
