2 (12 ounce)
chopped fresh parsley
grated Parmesan cheese

this was really good, probably didn't need as much bread crumb mixture as stated. I'll use half the bread mixture next time, but very moist and tender. i cooked the terderloins 30 mins. instead of the 20 mins that was suggested they were perfect.
If you’re simply going to top the tenderloin with the crumb mixture you can easily get by with just half of what’s called for. Once I mixed it up and realized I had way more than I needed, a side of me said to simply bag the rest and use it another time (it would have been great on shrimp!). But what I ended up doing was to coat the entire tenderloin with the mustard/garlic mixture, then completely cover it in the bread crumb mixture and drizzled a little olive oil over the top. To prevent it from getting soggy on the bottom, I roasted it on a rack I placed on a cookie sheet. My tenderloin was almost exactly a pound, and it cooked to perfect tender and juicy perfection at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. This is one of the better pork tenderloin recipes I’ve tried, uniquely flavorful with elegant, company-worthy presentation. I used fresh thyme, using the rule of thumb three times as much as dried. I served this with Oven-Roasted Potatoes and Savory Summer Squash, both recipes also from this site.
I made this for my husband and I, and it was very good. Cooking time was a little off, but I must have had a thicker cut of meat. I baked it for 45 minutes and it was moist, tender and delicious.
I made a change that I feel was somewhat major. I don't normally do that, but I dislike mustard and so I replaced it with mayo in this recipe. I think it turned out well, the pork was tender and the breadcrumb cheese spice mixture stuck to it just fine. Next time I may try olive oil instead of the mayo. I worry the crust will not stick, but the flavor may be more complementary.
Update: I saw on a cooking show recently where sour cream was used to make a crust stick to a roast. Maybe that could work here also?
I really enjoyed this! It was so tender and moist. I usually have all of the ingredients on hand so plan to make it more often. I had two tenderloins which were a pretty nice size, so cooked it longer~probably about 40 minutes. Served with roasted brussel sprouts and corn on the cob. I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company. It also makes fabulous sandwiches the next day!
This was amazing, I served it to friends last weekend, it was so tender and juicy amazing
This was really good! The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because of the mustard. I'm not a big fan of dijon mustard so I think I'll use olive oil next time. The cooking time was also off for me...took 40 mins. Will definitely make again!
It was soooo good but I'm sure the time was wrong, I added 20 extra minutes not counting the 5 minutes standing time (of course used my thermometer). We also added a touch of cayenne just to jazz it up a bit...everything else was perfect! I could see slicing it open and adding spinach and garlic....
