Delicious Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Two Dinner Pork Tenderloin Recipes!

First Night:

Peppered Pork Tenderloin with Tomato Mint Salsa


  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 12 oz. each) – add a third tenderloin if you’d like to make Pork Dinner #2
  • 1 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 6 T. olive oil
  • 2 t. salt
  • 3/4 t. black pepper
  • 4 large tomatoes, cored and chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 c. chopped sweet onion
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 c. chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 c. red wine vinegar
  • 2 – 3 avocados, sliced
  • 10 – 12 flour tortillas


  1. Place the tenderloins in a medium bowl.  Add the balsamic vinegar, 1 T. olive oil, 1 t. salt, 1/2 t. pepper.  Combine these ingredients to coat pork well.  Cover and set aside.
  2. Combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and mint in a medium bowl.  Whisk together the red wine vinegar and the remaining olive oil, salt and pepper.  Pour over the tomato mixture and toss well; cover and set aside.
  3. Using a large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray, cook tenderloins over medium high heat for about 3 minutes per side, browning each evenly.  Remove from skillet to a platter and let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice tenderloin, serve with Tomato-Mint Salsa, sliced avocado and warmed flour tortillas.

Serves:   4 to 6

    Love any recipe that has a “re-make” to it for leftovers. This sounds wonderful!
