Pork tenderloin is practically a universal favorite. And for time-starved cooks, tenderloin has the added bonus of being super-easy and almost foolproof for delicious results.

Today's recipe for Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin is wonderful with roasted or mashed potatoes and steamed green beans or a simple salad. But it's also special enough to stand as the star on a table laden with treats for a small to medium gathering.


I love to serve a platter of thinly sliced Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin along with an array of cheeses, fruits, nuts, vegetables, crackers and bread. That is the perfect party menu and creates the ambience of casual elegance (although it's often called "Mom's grazing menu" around my house). Everything can be prepared ahead, so when your guests arrive, the grazing -- er, nibbling -- can begin. Enjoy!

Suggested menu for four: Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin, 4 to 6 cheeses (2 to 4 ounces each), thinly sliced raw vegetables, assorted nuts, fruits and berries, crackers and thin baguette slices, red and white wine.
