Pork Tenderloin

This is so delicious, I thought for today I would post it for you to try, I love pork, even though I know it is not good for me, anything pork is good to me. Hope you try this and let me know how you like it. I think perhaps Tuesday I will try it again, for company coming then, pray I get to feeling better, I have had this bad cold, started as a head cold now in my chest, I am coughing a lot too, I rubbed down with Vick last evening before bed, and used the wax paper we used to when I was young, felt so funny, I was a real crinkle with every move.
So here is the Pork Tenderloin Recipe for you.


1 (1 1/2 pound) fat-trimmed pork tenderloin
salt and pepper to taste
all-purpose flour for dusting
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (8 ounce) bottle Russian-style salad dressing
3/4 cup honey
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.Trim any excess fat from pork and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Dust with flour, shaking off any excess.
3.In a large skillet, heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Sear the pork in the oil, rotating to brown evenly all sides. Transfer to a baking dish just large enough to fit the tenderloin.
4.In a bowl, stir together the Russian-style salad dressing, honey, and onion soup mix. Pour evenly over the tenderloin, rolling the meat to coat on all sides. Cover with aluminum foil.
5.Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, basting with glaze every 10 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking another 30 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink in the center.

Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup Italian dressing
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper to taste

1.Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with the contents of the soup packet. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over the top, turning the pork to coat. Carefully spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of the roast during cooking as possible. Sprinkle with pepper, cover, and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.

The pork recipe sounds very good...
I can remember my Mom rubbing me down with Bengay..oh yeah...then placing a dry wash cloth over it and penning the cloth to my pj's.

Do hope you ahve got on top of that cold... I have to avoid them as they quickly turn to bronchitis on me.

Lean pork is a very good,though I just roast it. Your recipe sounds very delicious. I'm sure your company will enjoy it immensely.

My Mom used Vicks and the dry wash cloth Mary mentioned. I guess it helped -- the wash rag, I mean -- but Vicks still went everywhere!!

As for this recipe -- hey, it's lean, it's really good for you and it tastes wonderful. Now, if it were bacon, fried pork chops, ham slices -- those are great, but not so much good for you!

Pork usually does not agree with me, but I eat it anyway even though it's not good for me. It looks and sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing. Hope you feel better soon. We all had the same thing down here in Florida, it's been going around. Blessings.
