Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri


Let's face it- pork is boring. And it's for this reason I think it's often forgotten about. Pork is the simple way to diversify your meals when you're stuck in a chicken rut. Chimichurri is a great - low fat way- to make bland pork explode with flavour.

But shhhhh, don't tell anyone how easy it is...

1 pork tenderloin
Crushed sea salt
Freshly ground pepper
2tbsp olive oil

Directions
1. Heat oven to 425F.
2. Place the pork tenderloin on a cooking sheet with aluminum foil. 
3. Smear the olive oil over the pork.
4. Sprinkle crushed sea salt and freshly ground pepper over the pork and rub in with hands. 
5. Place in oven and cook for 30-40 minutes or until it's only a little bit pink inside.

Chimichurri
