Cook for 15-18 minutes at 425. Do not over cook. Remove meat from oven, and immediately wrap meat in Saran or other plastic wrap tightly. Set aside.
Remove the meat from plastic wrap. Place on cutting board and slice into 34-1 inch thick medallions. Place the meat on a serving platter and pour the sauce over the meat.
Serve with warm cabbage slaw and tarragon mayo.
Buy the right kind of pork. This isPork Tenderloin. The package is long and skinny. Pork Tenderloin is often confused with Pork Loin. Do not buy Pork Loin roast. It’s usually a fat (shaped) roast. It doesn’t work well with this cooking method. I can’t tell you how many times a friend has called and said they are ready to make a recipe that calls for Pork Tenderloin, but instead have purchased Pork Loin roast. Oops. Check the name of the cut of meat carefully. Remember, the package is long and skinny. You may purchase Pork Tenderloin at any grocery store or at Costco in a two-pack. If you purchase in a two pack, usually one side of the package will weigh about 2 1/2 lbs. or enough for a single recipe above. If you double the recipe, I would 1 1/2 times the sauce. You won’t need two times the sauce/marinade.
– If you are following instructions for make ahead (above in the post) remove the meat from the fridge about an hour before cooking, and let sit on counter in bag.
-Make sure the oven is preheated for at least 10 minutes before cooking the pork. You want the oven to be all the way up to temperature.
-Wrapping the meat: Use plastic wrap. This adds an extra measure of trapping the juice in, and next to the meat. If you are waiting more than about 10 minutes to serve dinner after the pork is cooked, try wrapping in foil over the plastic wrap as well to keep it warm. One more note about wrapping the meat in plastic wrap. I watched a chef from the Grand America Hotel in action last year at a fund raising dinner. He wrapped the pork roast he cooked in plastic wrap. If it’s good enough for the Grand, it’s good enough for me
-Don’t over cook the meat. it will continue to cook after removed from oven while wrapped in plastic wrap.
