Roasted Potatoes and Ginger Sesame Pork Tenderloin

Cooking is something I've enjoyed since I was a little girl, 
but that doesn't mean I like to be in the kitchen all day preparing a meal.
Here's a quick and very easy meal that everyone enjoys in our house.

Roasted Potatoes with garlic and spring onion seasoning

Pork Tenderloin with ginger sesame seasoning

 Roasted Potatoes
Preheat oven to 500 degrees
6 Russet Potatoes, washed and cut into chunks (see photo below)
Toss with olive oil and favorite seasonings. I use
Garlic and Spring Onion seasoning & Kosher Salt.
Place in roasting pan, I spray a little Pam on the bottom
of the pan to keep the potatoes from sticking.
Roast for about 30-40 minutes, uncovered. 
Check periodically, I turn the potatoes once or twice while
roasting to make sure they're cooked evenly.

Pork Tenderloin
Preheat oven to 500 degrees (I cooked the potatoes and tenderloins together)
I use 2 packaged Pork Tenderloins-Hatfield, unseasoned.
They come marinated too, but I like to add my own flavors.
I coated these with Blood Orange Olive Oil-I had been at a store
at Chelsea Markets and they had wonderful flavored olive oils,
balsamic vinegars and salts, so I had to try them out.
Season with Kosher Salt, Ginger and Sesame Seasoning.
Place on raised rack in a roasting pan, uncovered.
They cook in about 45 minutes, depending on their size. 
I use an instant read thermometer-when the tenderloin reaches 150 degrees
take them out and wrap them in foil for about 10 minutes
while prepping the vegetables or setting the table.
Slice, serve and enjoy.

See, a good meal doesn't have to be a big deal!

Hi Lynn, I love roasted potatoes and pork tenderloin. I have not heard of the Blood Orange Olive Oil. I know they don't have it here in my little town but will look for it when I get to a larger super market.
Hope you are having a great weekend.

I could ALMOST be a vegetarian, except that as long as pigs roam the earth I'll never quite be able to manage. I have a major weakness for all things pork - can't wait to try this!
