Balsamic-Garlic Crusted Pork Tenderloin

One of my favorite things to cook is a pork tenderloin.  My all time favorite recipe is on another post on my blog.  I came across this recipe and had to try it and it was delicious!  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!! :)

Balsamic-Garlic Crusted Pork Tenderloin

4-5 garlic cloves, finely minced or crushed

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 pork tenderloins (about 1¼ pounds each)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat canola oil in a large, heavy saute pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add pork, and brown all over, about 4 minutes.

Transfer pan to oven. Roast pork, turning occasionally, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board, and try to let it rest 10 minutes before slicing.
