So to roast a tenderloin I:
Preheat oven to 350*
Wash the meat under running water
Place in roasting pan (I use Pampered Chef covered baker)
Rub thyme, oregano and pepper into meat. I use the actual spice and not the powder but both are acceptable.
Add about 1.5 inches of water
Cover and roast 28 to 30 minutes per pound to an internal temperature of at least 160*
When meat is done, I take it out of the roasting pan and let it "rest" on the platter about 5 minutes before slicing.
We serve this with dressing, taters, corn, green beans, fried sweet potatoes, corn bread and homemade white bread. And of course a wide variety of desserts! Also, don't forget the sweet tea!
