This recipe is an excellent go-to for a weeknight meal! Looks fancy, but it comes together super fast. The sauce is delicious and helps it be a more forgiving dish. This is one of my favorites!
- Sharp knife
- Large skillet
- Ladle/large spoon
Preheat oven to 425° F.
Diamond cut the top side of the pork tenderloin about 1/2”-3/4” into the flesh. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Add olive oil and butter to a large skillet and heat to medium/medium-high heat.
Sear tenderloin first on the flat side down. Sear medium / medium-high for 3-4 min until browned.
Toss cauliflower in olive oil and salt and scatter around the roast in the skillet, cut side down.
Place 1-2 tbsp worth of butter in the slits and transfer the tenderloin to the oven to finish cooking. Finish in oven at roughly 15 min until internal temp reaches 145° (although check at 10 minutes to not overcook)
Ladle sauce over before baking or serve hot on the side (my preference with kids) since sometimes they are picky. Enjoy!
