Make It Now:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450° F.
  2. In small bowl stir together garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, ground thyme, and salt until well combined.
  3. Place the pork tenderloin on a rimmed baking sheet.* Rub the seasoning on all sides of the pork tenderloin, pressing so the seasoning adheres well. (Freezing instructions begin here.)
  4. Bake until it reaches an internal temp of 140-145°F. This will take about 25 minutes, depending on the size of your pork tenderloin. Note: It will still be slightly pink inside!
  5. Cover with foil and let it rest for 5-10 minutes so the juices redistribute. (The temperature will also rise another 5°F during this time.) Slice on an angle and serve.

*Tip: Cover the sheet pan with parchment or foil for easier clean up.

Freeze For Later: Follow Steps 2-3. Place the seasoned pork tenderloin in a gallon-sized freezer bag, squeeze out the air and seal tightly, and freeze for up to 3 months.

Prepare From Frozen: Thaw the meal using one of these safe thawing methods. Place the pork on a rimmed sheet pan and follow Steps 4-5.


  • Pan-Searing Option: If you’d like, you can sear the pork on all sides before baking. (I never do this step because the recipe is so easy and delicious without it.) Here’s how: Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it’s shimmering. Carefully place tenderloin in the hot pan using tongs and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until the meat is browned evenly. Then, bake until internal temperature reaches 140-145°F.
  • Grilling Instructions: Use our popular Grilled Pork Tenderloin recipe.
  • Where We Buy Our Pork: We get our pork from ButcherBox. The chicken is organic and curated from trusted farms. We highly recommend this service to source healthy meat–like uncured bacon, grass-fed beef, and wild salmon–and have used it for years ourselves.
