Roasted Pork with Tomatillo Sauce

Pork, tomatillos and green chilis are one of those combinations that just work. This is how restaurant meals work. A prepped tomatillo sauce and pork - pretty short list of ingredients...
Course: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 2


  • 1 14 oz pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup tomatillo salsa
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  • Pre-heat your oven to 385F.
  • In an oven-proof skillet heat the oil and sear the pork on all sides.
  • Place pork in the oven. You are looking for an internal temp of 135F. This is about 10 minutes for the tenderloin. Likely around an hour or so for the pork loin.
  • Remove pork from oven. Remove pork from pan and tent with foil.
  • Place pan over medium heat, deglaze the pan with the tomatillo salsa, stirring constantly. Fry the tomatillo salsa for about 1 minute. If the sauce is too thick add a few Tbsp chicken stock.
  • Carve the pork. Return any accumulated juices to the sauce and stir.


You can buy tomatillo salsa. That works. Tomatillo sauce from scratch works better.
