Pork Tenderloin: How to cook it?

I bought a 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin marinated in a thai style lemon grass seasoning

How should i cook it? The guy said cook it in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes a pound.

is this right? How long should i cook this 1 1/2 lb tenderloin?


What type of baking dish should i use?

I have metal shallow pans and i have a glass 13x9 casserole type dish.

Also, should i wrap it in foil? Will the fat on it cook off? It's a good cut from a great store here but ive never cooked it so i dont know.

sear it as hot as you can without burning it then cook it in a 200 degree oven till the interior temp is 170 degrees.


i would sear it in a metal handled saute pan so you can throw it right in the oven

Just throw it in a pan with some water, it does not need to be covered. If you like it you can sprinkle some garlic powder on the pork.

At 350 degrees you will need to cook it around 30 minutes a pound.

Pork nowadays since it is soooo lean can be eaten a little pinkish.

You really need a meat thermometer, the cheapo ones cost like 3 bucks. 20 bucks can get you a digital one with a few nice features on it.

I know you are talking about cooking in the oven but my absolute favorite way to have pork tenderloin (especially if it is marinated) is to throw it in the crockpot overnight. You put it in on low at about 10pm and then by lunch the next day you have some mouthwatering pork that you can serve just about anyway you want.

One of my favorites is as a sandwich - using onion buns!

I'd raise the heat to 400 and cook it for 30 minutes.

I second the suggestion to buy a thermometer.

200 degrees? Hope you don't mind waiting a LONG time for your food.

Pork is finished cooking at 150-155 degrees. If you take it out at 170, you'll end up with cardboard.
