"This main dish is beautiful in its presentation and always comes out tender and juicy even if you overcook it a little. The crust of bread crumbs holds in all the juices and adds a great look and taste to the finished product."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Mix bread crumbs and olive oil in bowl to reach consistency that would be moist enough to stick to the meat when pressed. Place pork on a shallow cooking sheet. Press the crumb mixture onto all sides of the meat until there is no pink showing, usually 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Bake for at least 35 minutes until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) or until there is no pink when the pork is cut. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes, then cut into 1/2 inch slices.

This couldn't have been any more tender! Instead of mixing the olive oil with the bread crumbs, I rubbed the tenderloin with the oil, then rolled in the breadcrumbs. Such an easy dish to serve...

One of our favorite pork recipes...and so easy! Should be called "Pork Prime Rib." I rubbed the tenderloin with garlic salt and pepper before breading. I also used garlic/rosemary olive oil mix...
