  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Trim any excess fat from pork and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Dust with flour, shaking off any excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Sear the pork in the oil, rotating to brown evenly all sides. Transfer to a baking dish just large enough to fit the tenderloin.
  4. In a bowl, stir together the Russian-style salad dressing, honey, and onion soup mix. Pour evenly over the tenderloin, rolling the meat to coat on all sides. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, basting with glaze every 10 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking another 30 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink in the center.

I made this recipe in the slow cooker and let it simmer on low all day. (Approx. 10 hours) It was absolutely delicious. The aroma was wonderful and the meat was fork tender and juicy! The lef...

This was really good. The pork turned out moist and very tender. I agree with other reviewers about cutting down on the honey. I used maple syrup because at the last minute I discovered I did...

This turned out great, my notoriously picky wife even liked this after I made it. I do use a little bit less honey than the recipe calls for. Also, once I forgot to pick up the honey , so subs...

I have to give this 5 stars because it was SO good, but I did alter the recipe a bit. My tenderloin came pre-marinated in teriaki, so I wanted to go with that flavor. I used half a bottle of asi...
