FAQs About This Recipe

How do I add heat to this recipe?

If you’re looking for a spicier tenderloin there are a couple ways to increase the heat: add red pepper flakes and/or chili powder to your seasoning mix or top it with hot sauce prior to cooking.

How do you store this recipe?

We use single compartment 3.4 cup meal prep containers to store this recipe. If you’re making a side for this recipe that doesn’t absorb juices well, we’d recommend placing the side in a separate compartment or meal prep container to help prevent it from becoming soggy.

Tips From the Kitchen

Endless options for sides: I cannot think of any side that wouldn’t pair well with this juicy seasoned tenderloin. Some great options include fries, asparagus, broccoli, green beans or side salads. Let us know what you pair this meal with!

Season all sides of the tenderloin: Aside from the juiciness of this recipe, the best part is how it becomes perfectly seasoned when cooking. Make sure to cover all sides of the tenderloin with olive oil and seasoning prior to cooking.

Make sure your baking sheet can catch the juices: As you might have noticed, this recipe is very juicy. When baking, the baking sheet will fill with juices. We’d recommend making sure the sides of your baking sheet are at least 1/2 inch tall. This will make sure it catches the juice and make it much easier for removing from the oven.
