Super fast and easy pork tenderloin

This is one of my new go-to meals for my little family or even when we have people over and I don't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen and more time socializing.

What you need:
2 lb (ish) pork tenderloin (fat trimmed and patted dry with a paper towel)
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic poweder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp thyme
cooking spray or extra olive oil for searing

What to do:

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 with a sheet pan covered in foil IN the oven (you want it hot when you put the pork in)
2. Rub the pork with the tsp olive oil
3. Combine all spices in a little bowl and then rub pork with them
4. Heat oil or cooking spray in skillet
5. Sear the tenderloin on all sides for like 1 minute each side
6. Pop the tenderloin in the oven on your pre-heated cooking sheet and bake for about 14 minutes or until the center is 150 degrees
7. Take out and let rest for about 5-10 minutes before slicing (might be a bit pink in the middle...don't freak long as the temp is're good)

I love to pair this with roasted veggies and sweet potatoes or mixed veggies and rice...yummy!!
