No joke my fellow friends; just typing this is making me drool!  When I first made this recipe I wanted all the ranchie feels, without all the ranchie sauce schlopped all over it.  So I omitted the “cream” part of ranch and just used the seasonings. And guys, it turned out good. Like really really good.

Perhaps you are like “Jenn, this looks great and all, but I don’t eat pork.” Don’t worry, this is great on chicken, or even fish. But the key to making all the flavors stand out is “marinating” it.  I prefer tossing everything together into a ziplock bag the night before, sticking it into the fridge and letting it do its “thang” all night long.

All night long, all night, all night, all night long…..(name that song)

I digress.

You can still throw on all the seasonings right before cooking, the flavors won’t just be like POW! (it will still be good)

Sidenote:  The pork will continue to cook after it is taken out of the oven. So if you wait until the thermometer hits 160 degrees, you will have a tough piece o’ pork.  Womp womp.

    This looks so good! Did you use a pork loin or a pork tenderloin? Title says pork tenderloin but recipe says pork loin. Thanks.

  2. Erika says:

    The recipe is for pork tenderloin but the ingredients call for pork loin. Which did you use for this? The cook time seems long for tenderloin.

    So I’m trying this tonight but my store only had pork loin filets. I got two so it’s about 2.5 lbs but do you think I’d need to reduce the cooking time since it’s two smaller pieces?

      check after the initial 45 minute cook time. If it’s to temp, then remove. If not cook another 10 minutes. Unless the temp of the pork is really close to being at 150, then check after 5 minutes. Hope that makes sense!

        I made this tonight with the two pork loin filets and the cook time from your recipe ended up working perfect still. It was great thanks!!
