Slap Ya Mama’s Spicy Herb Marinated Pork Tenderloin





In a 4 – 5 litre resalable plastic bag, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest, mustard, olive oil, lemon juice and Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning.  Mix ingredients a bit, place tenderloin into bag and turn to coat with marinade.  Remove all air from bag, seal and mix a bit more.  Let tenderloin marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours…if possible, let it marinate over night.

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Remove tenderloin from plastic bag, careful to leave marinade that is still clinging to tenderloin and discard the plastic bag of marinade. Generously season tenderloin with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning, making sure to season all sides.  In a large over-proof sauté pan, heat 3 tsp of olive oil over medium heat. 

Place tenderloins in pan and sear until all sides reach a golden brown colour.  Place pan and tenderloins in oven and roast for 15 minutes or until the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 60°C

Remove from oven, place tenderloins on a platter, cover with aluminium foil and let rest for about 10 minutes.  Place the same pan over medium heat and add ¼ cup of water.  Heat water and stir to help bring up the tenderloin’s juices and marinade that are stuck to the bottom of the pan, creating a gravy. Carve tenderloin into 12mm thick diagonal slices, drizzle with gravy, serve and enjoy.
