Thoroughly Cooked Pork Tenderloin

Sunday night we had a yummy pork tenderloin for dinner! Mom told me about the McCormick packet for pork tenderloin (you can see it below) and how easy it was! All you need to buy is the packet (it's called "Bag & Season") and the pork. It comes with a bag and a pouch of seasoning so you just put the meat in the bag, sprinkle in the seasoning, mix it around, stick it in a pan and put it in the oven.

Now, if you're like me, you read the directions and follow them exactly. "Bake for 25-30 minutes." Okay super. FOR ONCE IN MY COOKING LIFE I had everything ready at that 30 minute mark. Hot alfredo noodles, warmed up green beans... yum. We were ready to eat.

But the meat, however, was not ready. So after adding "just 10 more minutes" a few more times, it was finally ready.

I even went ahead and cut it up into pieces before the last "10 minutes" just so I could make sure it was done. Doesn't it look amazing though? Mmmm...

All in all, we were REALLY happy with the way it turned out. We will definitely make it again soon, but I'll make sure to factor in an hour instead of 30 minutes. :)

P.S. We have made some really yummy leftovers with the meat - like quesadillas! YUM!

Oh, and dessert. Be still my soul. NoBake Cookies, or as Jessica calls them "peanut-butter-chocolate-oatmeal-cookies."
I don't want to tell you how fast we finished off this pan...

  1. Guess what I made last night and brought to work today? No-bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Oatmeal cookies! :-) On the tenderloin, sometimes the instructions say 20 minutes PER POUND. ?? It could also be that your oven isn't calibrated and is cooking at a lower temperature than what you set.


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
