Simple Pork Tenderloin

Simple Pork TenderloinMy father found an amazing prime rib seasoning years ago called Snider’s. I can never find it in the grocery stores here in Portland, so he always loads me up whenever I run out (thanks dad). This rub isn’t just for prime rib. I love this seasoning on pork, beef, and especially on ribs. I had a pork tenderloin to make and decided to keep it really simple. I seasoned the tenderloin with Snider’s and extra black pepper. Seared it on all sides then finished cooking it in the oven. The meat was flavorful, tender, and juicy. I love simple recipes like this! I served this pork tenderloin with my favorite Baked Potato and Roasted Grape Tomatoes.

Simple Pork Tenderloin:


  • 1 pork tenderloin, silver skin removed
  • Snider’s prime rib rub, to taste (or your favorite seasoning mix)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil

How to Make a Simple Pork Tenderloin

Remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin then season the entire piece of meat with Snider’s prime rib rub (or your favorite seasoning mix) and black pepper.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork tenderloin and cook until brown on all sides, turning occasionally, about 5-6 minutes.

Place the skillet into the oven, and bake for 15 minutes or until the meat thermometer registers 155-160 degrees (medium) or desired degree of doneness. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy.

  1. Hi again Pam. I just saw your rub at Thriftway. I wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't just read your post. I'm looking forward to trying it. I do a lot of grilling in the better weather and it sounds great.

  2. This looks scrummy, I will have to look out for Snider's in the store – but knowing our supermarket, I'm not optimistic.

  3. I love pork tenderloin and a sear/roast is always the way to go. Yours looks excellent!

    I pull mine at 145-150f before resting.

  4. This is very easy and quite impressing too!!!
    My daughter saw this and prepared a special meal for the family. She was able to pull it off. I was amazed not until I read this. It sure is easy and great..,
    Keep it up!

  5. Absolutely delicious!! I added a wonderful pineapple chutney during the last minutes of cooking. Thanks for the great receipes.
