Oven Roasted Pork Loin

I love a dinner that I can put in the oven and forget about it. You set a timer and work on getting your tasks done for the day or you kick up your feet after a long day of work and relax while then oven does the work for you.

Growing up my mom has always bought a half a cow and half a pig for our freezer. It’s just what you do out here in the country living. We always had endless supply of whatever we wanted for dinner. Honestly, it spoiled me and didn’t prepare me for real life. When I moved out and Ryan and I couldn’t afford bulk meats for our freezer we sure did miss it. Can we move back home mom?!? Do you buy bulk meats in your home? We adjusted to missing that freezer filled with meat and began to learn how to buy and save money but keep our freezer stocked.

A meal that is a staple in our freezer is pork tenderloins. They are a simple meal that we can pull out the day before to thaw and it is ready to cook when we get home the next.

If these are not on your shopping list weekly, get it on there. You will appreciate the simplicity of this meal.
