Perfectly Searing Pork Tenderloin

I have found a new juicy way to searing pork tenderloin.

What’s in your vegetable oil?  You may not realize it, but most vegetable oils sole ingredient is soybean oil.   Among the healthiest of all oils, soybean oil is low in saturated fat, contains no trans fat, high in poly-fats and monounsaturated fats.  Soybean oil is also the main source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E.  So check your labels before you buy your next bottle of oil and make sure the ingredient is soybean oil.

 I am a huge fan of this Natural blend oil that includes soybean oil.

Use soybean oil in all of your favorite recipes.  Tonight we enjoyed a simple and savory searing pork tenderloin with a side salad.  With three simple ingredients and 25 minutes you can whip up and do a healthy meal.  Searing pork tenderloin is insanely easy.  All you need is a pork tenderloin, meat tenderizer seasoning and 1-2 tablespoons soybean oil.

Season Tenderloin and set aside.  Pre-heat over to 400 degrees.  Take an oven safe pan and heat 1-2 tablespoons of soybean oil on the stove medium-high heat.  Once oil has heated place seasoned tenderloin on pan searing pork on all sides to a slight brown crisp throughout outer edges.  I do 3-5 minutes and turning on each side.

Once you have done all sides, place the searing pork in the hot  pan in oven for 18 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145-150 degrees.  Use an instant read thermometer to check the temperature.

My husband enjoys his meats cooked to medium, so I did stop the cooking at 145 degrees and let the pork rest 4 minutes before slicing into medallions and serving with a quick side salad.
