Roasted Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches

This recipe comes from my old roomie, Mimi. We roomed together at the University of Montevallo and have been good friends now for over 30 years. Very simpatico. There is an island named after us called Meama-Vicka Island, but that is another story. She is an amazing cook and I've gotten a lot of ideas from her. She made this pork for us one afternoon when we were at the beach together and I have made it many times since. It is easy and yummy! I don't even remember the exact seasonings she used. Just use your favorites.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches

1 pork tenderloin
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
Colonel Paul's Cajun Seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
Hoagie rolls
favorite sandwich condiments, such as mustard, mayo, banana pepper slices, olives, etc

Line a baking dish with foil. Season the tenderloin with your favorite seasonings. Bake at 450° for about 30 minutes. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Slice.

If you line the baking dish with foil, it cuts out a lot of mess.

Season generously with seasonings on the top and bottom.

Cooking at a high temperature browns it beautifully and really brings out the flavor.

Crusty brown on the outside and moist on the inside. Slice and enjoy!
