Cajun Spiced Pork Tenderloin

By edvel54

Ingredients
  • Cajun Rub

  • 1 Tbsp. sweet paprika

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 tsp. onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves

  • 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves

  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a roasting pan rack with cooking spray.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the Cajun Rub.

  3. Rub the pork tenderloin with the olive oil. Coat both sides of the pork with the rub, making sure to use all of the rub. Roast the pork until the internal temperature reads 150-160°F, about 25 to 30 minutes. (If you prefer well-done pork, add cooking time to bring the internal temperature to 170°F.)

  4. Remove the pork from the oven, and allow it to stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
