This tenderloin makes a great tasting gravy as it cooks. The pork comes out tender with lots of flavor and the vegetables absorb a lot of that flavor as they cook down. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin

  • ¼ cup minced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 cups chopped carrots

  • 3 potatoes, cubed

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place the pork tenderloin in a 10x15 inch roasting pan. In a separate small bowl, combine the garlic, ground black pepper, tarragon and olive oil. Mix this well and spread over the pork. Then place the carrots and potatoes around the meat. Combine the soy sauce and 1 cup water in a separate small bowl and pour over the vegetables around the roast. Cover all tightly with foil.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the internal pork temperature reaches 145 (63 degrees C).

  4. Transfer the roast and vegetables to a serving platter and pour the liquid from the roasting pan into a small saucepan over medium heat. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1/2 cup water and add to the liquid in the pan. Stir well and allow sauce to thicken.
