FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
The USDA says pork is safe to eat once it has reached an internal temperature of 145°F. An instant read internal thermometer will always be the best way to check the doneness of meat.
Pork tenderloin should be cooked fast and hot. This will help seal in the juices and keep the pork from drying out by cooking too long.
The key is not to overcook. You don’t want to overcook pork as it is a lean meat and can dry out very quickly when overcooked. Secondly, using a marinade on the pork tenderloin will help keep the meat tender and juicy.

Yes, but I would cut the amount down in half because the dried herbs pack more of a punch.
Stored in an airtight container, this will keep for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. This can also be frozen, the best way to do that is freeze when it is cut. Wrap each portion in plastic wrap and place in a freezer container or bag. This should last for up to 3 months. Let defrost in the refrigerator.
