Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with pepper and salt. Add to the pan and brown on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Transfer the pan to the oven; bake until the pork has just a hint of pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 155 F, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. (The internal temperature will increase to 160 F during resting.) To serve, cut the pork into thin slices.
