Sometimes life really puts a kink in your homemade dinner plans and you’re left with a hungry family, no time and the options of not eating or spending money on unhealthy, carry-out or delivery. But fear not – this Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin is fast, homemade and delicious. When I meal plan for the week I actually plan on life throwing me 1 – 2 curve-balls that week and I come up with recipes that I can get done on the fly by keeping the ingredients and prep to a minimum. In this instance, once your herbs are chopped, all you have to do is throw the pork in the oven and wait for it to be done. I served mine with some fresh green beans and roasted potatoes for an excellent weeknight meal – life’s interruptions be damned!
