This Greek-inspired pork tenderloin gets its flavor from the oregano, rosemary and lemon peel mixture that's rubbed on prior to cooking. Each zesty bite tastes best with a bit of the minty-garlic yogurt sauce.

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Trim fat from pork. In a small bowl combine lemon peel, oregano, salt, rosemary and pepper. Sprinkle over all sides of the pork and rub in with your fingers.
  2. In a large oven-going skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add roast to hot skillet; cook for 4 minutes or until browned, turning to brown all sides evenly. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast about 20 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest portion of meat registers 145°F. Remove from oven and let stand, covered, for 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small bowl combine yogurt, mint and garlic. To serve, thinly slice pork and divide among four serving plates. Top with yogurt mixture.
