Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh oregano
    • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
    • ¾ teaspoon cracked black pepper
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1 1-pound pork tenderloin
    • 4 medium carrots, halved crosswise and quartered lengthwise
    • 2 medium cooking apples, cored and cut each into 8 wedges
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon oregano, the lemon peel, ½ teaspoon black pepper and ¼ teaspoon salt. Pour over tenderloin and rub into meat with your fingers. Place pork on 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Brush carrots and apple wedges with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add carrots to pan around pork.
