This Walnut-Crusted Pork Tenderloin recipe is sure to impress your Sunday dinner guests.
2pork tenderloins, 1-2 lbs. each
salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Season pork tenderloins with salt and pepper.
In a food processor, combine walnuts, flour and brown sugar and pulse until it becomes a consistent crumb mixture, not a paste.
Spread walnut mixture onto a large platter and dredge all sides of the tenderloins with the mixture.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat; add the butter and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. When the butter has melted and the oil is hot, sear all sides of the tenderloins. Place tenderloins on a roasting pan with foil underneath.
Place the tenderloins in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Internal temperature should be 160°F. If not done, bake for another 5 minutes.
Allow to rest on a cutting board.
When ready to serve, slice tenderloins on an angle and about ¼ to 1/2-inch thickness.
