Seared Pork Tenderloin with Sun-Dried Tomatoes


I’ve been on a kick in recent months with sun-dried tomatoes. I didn’t really use them before this summer. Now I keep dreaming up new meals!

Some of my highlights:

Sun-Dried Tomato Mini Meatloaves

Sun-Dried Tomato Baked Chicken

Simple meals that provide a pack of flavor with this lovely ingredient. I always buy the jarred SDT (yes, I started abbreviating sun-dried tomatoes..but then had to type this out so not a time saver in the end.) I buy the jarred but put them in a colander and run them under warm water to rinse all the oil off. It will be pretty darn oily, so leave it there for a little while and toss them on occasion until you feel they are de-oiled.

I also love seared pork tenderloin. When you sear it on the heated skillet before baking in the oven it brings a lot of flavor out but the oven keeps moisture locked in. This is important when using pork- it can dry out pretty quickly.
