...company crusted pork tenderloin...

Are you looking for something to have maybe Wednesday night?  Or Saturday when company is still in from out of town?  Try this.  Julie over at Fresh Basil posted about this recipe when she made it for some visitors, and I had to try it.  I got a pork tenderloin for about $6 which isn't bad, considering that'll feed us a few meals.

I tweaked the original recipe a bit- when don't I- and liked the variation I did here.  Again, surprise surprise, I used what I had in the fridge so I didn't have to go to the store.  I love a good grocery store, but around us we find well, not the best.

Recipe adapted from Cooking Light

Company Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Breadcrumb Mixture
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup rosemary, chopped
3 T. grated Parmesan
2 t. thyme

Mustard Mixture
2 T. dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic

Preheat oven to 450.
Season pork with salt and pepper.
Rub Mustard Mixture all over, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
Place on a cooking sheet that has cooking spray on it.

Bake at 450 for 25 minutes, or until just pink but done in the center, 160 degrees.  Let stand for 10 minutes then cut in and enjoy!
