Paleo Cracked Pepper Pork Tenderloin

I just love when I come across a delicious recipe that is ridiculously easy…and this recipe is one of those!

I stumbled across it one night when j was exhausted and totally hoping to order in for dinner. But it wasn’t in our budget to order something that night so I trudged to the kitchen, hoping to make something work with very minimal effrt.

I opened my fridge, saw a bunch of veggies, and thought, “Well, a big salad sounds good.”

But what to pair it with? I was kind of hoping to get leftovers from the effort I was putting in now…

It was then that I remembered a pork tenderloin I had bought at the store a few days earlier. So I pulled it out, rummaged through my spice cabinet, and this recipe was born.

When we were still totally loving it after several days of leftovers, I knew I wanted to share with all of you!

It ain’t fancy…but I promise you that it hits the spot!

  • 1-2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 1-1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon sage
  • 1/3 thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary


1. Place your pork tenderloin on a foiled covered sheet.

2. Coat evenly in both sides with the spices.

3. Cook in oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Since ovens vary, I highly recommend using a meat thermometer and checking every 5 minutes at the 30 minute mark.

4. When done to your liking, remove from oven and let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Serving Suggestion: I loved slicing up the pork over a huge salad, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.
