Pork tenderloin is the leanest piece of pork, in fact, it’s just as lean as a skinless chicken breast and doesn’t take long to cook, which makes it perfect for busy weekends. If you’re tired of making the same thing for dinner, this is the answer (and bonus, it’s completely people friendly).

This recipe comes from the cookbook Simple Food, Big Flavor, (affil link) by Aarón Sánchez (you may know him as one of the judges on Chopped). Yesterday I made a batch of Aarons Adobo just to make this pork dish. I also used this adobo seasoning for grilled pork chops and chicken breast, so flavorful!

I really craved coriander and lime rice and found it the perfect compliment. Finally press the lime wedges over the pork – delicious! Avocado, Refried Beans or Fiesta Bean Salad would also be fabulous as a side dish.


  • If you don’t want to make the dry grater from scratch, you can certainly buy a premixed seasoning and use that one instead.
  • If you want to cook this in the air fryer, air fryer at 400F for 20 minutes similar to my recipe for bacon wrapped pork tenderloin.
  • To bake it in the oven, bake 425F until an instant thermometer reads 145F in the center. Let the pork rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
