Rosemary & Thyme Roasted Pork Tenderloin

It was one of those days where I literally had no idea what to make for dinner. As we headed into to the grocery store there was a sign for buy one get one free on pork tenderloin. We enjoy pork tenderloin since it is low in fat and high in protein and easy to make. This one was packed with flavor and juicy inside. If you are feeling ambitious you can sear the sides in a pan prior to putting it in the oven. We were not that ambitious because I didn't want to dirty another pan/ feeling a bit lazy. It is great for a healthy, flavorful and quick dinner.
