Calypso Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Heat oven to 400.

Trim silver skin off pork tenderloin. Marinate for 30 minutes or more in olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and a generous sprinkling of Caribbean Calypso Spice Blend. Be careful that it's not too generous, though, as the bits will tend to burn a little. Marinating helps bring out the flavor without using too much.

Heat an ovenproof skillet to medium-high. Sear tenderloin on all sides until nicely browned. Transfer pan to oven and roast 10-15 minutes or until meat registers 145 in the center. Meat will be slightly pink in the center. Allow it to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing, so that meat relaxes and juices re-absorb.

I used xtra Caribbean Calypso Seasoning (almost 2 tablespoons) and omitted the salt. Used a cast iron pan for cooking with a bit of olive oil. Wow!! It was phenomenal!
