  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with pepper and salt. Add to the pan and brown on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Transfer the pan to the oven; bake until the pork has just a hint of pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 155 °F, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. (The internal temperature will increase to 160 ° during resting.) To serve, cut the pork into thin slices.

Great weeknight dinner. When we took the port out of the frying pan, we steamed some spinach in the pan and serve with brown rice and fresh pineapple. Simple and delicious. :) Pros: Fast and easy

I would add 5 to 6 garlic cloves to the pork loin before cooking, and sprinkle with italian seasoning before baking inthe oven.
