Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin



  • 3- pound pork loin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Prepare a roasting pot and lid (Or line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set aside.)Pat dry pork loin with paper towels.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  3. Lightly spray pork loin with cooking spray. This will make it easier for the spice mix to stick.
  4. Take the spice mix and rub it all over the pork loin.
  5. Heat olive oil over medium heat and sear the pork loin until browned on all sides; about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer pork loin to previously prepared roasting pot or baking sheet, fat-layer side up; set aside.
  6. In a bowl, combine garlic, honey, soy sauce, mustard and oil; whisk until well combined. If too thick, add a tbs of oil or soy sauce. Brush remaining honey mixture over the pork loin. Roast for 25 minutes.
  7. IF USING SHEET PAN-Tent a piece of foil over the pork so the top doesn’t burn, but the inside continues to cook. Put back in the oven and continue to cook for 25 to 30 more minutes, or until internal temperature of the pork loin reaches 145˚F. Use an Instant Read Thermometer to check for doneness. Stir vegetables half way through cooking.
  8. Remove baking sheet from oven and loosely cover meat; let rest 10 minutes. Cut the pork in slices and serve with veggies.
