Pork Tenderloin Souvlaki
It's Greek night!
1 1/2 tbps dried oregano
1 tbsp dried mint
1 tbsp dried thyme
1/2 tbsp dried basil
1/2 tbsp dehydrated minced onion
1 tsp freeze dried minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1. Mix everything together in an air tight container. (Mason jars work great for this!)
Pork Tenderloin Souvlaki:
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1 fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp Greek seasoning (as above)
1 lb pork tenderloin
1. Prepare your tenderloin by trimming off the excess fat and silver skin from the underside.
2. Mix all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into a resealable plastic Ziplock bag. Add tenderloin to the bag and seal. Massage marinade into the pork. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. When pork is done marinating, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
4. Place pork in a large, pre-heated skillet and quickly sear on all sides so the pork is lightly browned.
5. If your skillet is oven-safe, place directly into pre-heated oven, uncovered. If not, move tenderloin to a baking sheet or baking pan and place in oven.
6. Cook uncovered for 10-14 minutes (10 mins for medium, 14 mins for medium well).
7. Remove from oven and tent baking pan with foil. Let tenderloin rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
I paired my dinner with roasted potatoes & Greek salad and a side of 10 Cent's Tzatziki Sauce. Super yum dinner!
