Plan Ahead Pork Tenderloin...


Rosemary and Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin;
2 packages I love, love, love my vacuum sealed pork tenderloins from CostCo. I recently picked up two of tenderloins for a mere $20.00 . On
I’m also a big fan of the Good Season’s Italian Seasoning packets. I always have them on hand. For a salad, I mix it up with bal
1 cup of Italian salad dressing (I make a double batch and used the rest for a quick, fresh salad)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon fine ground sea salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper


Mix all of the ingredients together in a Zip-loc baggie and add the two pork tenderloins from the vacuum sealed pack.
Marinade in the refrigerator over night.
An hour or so before you are ready for dinner, either Pre-heat the oven to 350° or Pre-heat the grill and reduce to a medium-high heat.
Roast in the oven for about an hour, or on the grill for approximately 35-45 minutes; until the meat reaches 145°-150° on an instant read thermometer.
Allow to rest for 10-15 minutes, slice and serve…

If possible, continue with your July schedule into August as well.
What it really comes down to in the end is your
determination and hard work. Go is a great game for beginners and
experienced players alike.


As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……more plan ahead easy dinners! Who ever dared to suggest that the days of summer were lazy clearly wasn’t busy running their family all over creation. While some nights might be nice and leisurely, others are fraught with a flurry of activity. But what’s a family to do? They still have to eat. That’s when a little planning ahead comes in handy.

I am such a super fan of anything that can be prepped in advance, which is why I favor marinated meats and do-ahead potatoes. I knew this pork tenderloin was a real hit when my Nick said, “It tasted even better than it looked.” From a teenager; that’s quite an endorsement!
