Vesuvio-Style Pork Tenderloin November 21, 2013

Filed under: Costco — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I always pick up pork tenderloins when they are on clearance. They are simple to make, I can reuse the leftovers for things and everyone enjoys them. I got this from my trusty Costco cookbooks. The flavors were great but I crammed it into too small a pan so the potatoes were not in one layer, please don’t make this mistake. Otherwise we enjoyed this meal quite a bit. The original recipe called for peas but I grabbed green beans, yum.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed, each cut lengthwise into wedges
  • 2 pork tenderloins (I only used 1), about 2 1/2 inches thick
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Fresh green beans
  • Salt
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper




Preheat oven to 425

Combine garlic, oregano, sea salt and pepper. Mix 1 tsp of the seasoning mix with the olive oil. Toss with potato wedges and place in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.



Press remaining seasoning into the pork. Place the pork into the pan and surround with lemon slices.


Roast tenderloin and potatoes, uncovered for 15 minutes. Turn potato wedges over. Continue roasting 10-15 minutes longer or until pork is cooked through. Remove the pork tenderloin and place on a board to rest.

Add the green beans to the pan with the potatoes. Continue roasting until potatoes are fork tender and the beans are done. About 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste.

Serve and enjoy.
