Trader Joe's Peppercorn-Garlic Boneless Pork Tenderloin

I find myself glancing over the selection of fresh meats available at my local grocery store. One afternoon while deciding to jazz up my menu, I picked up a package of the Trader Joe's Peppercorn-Garlic Boneless Pork Tenderloin.

I'm a fan of pork tenderloin because it's a leaner cut if meat, while it's also one of the moister varieties of pork (I feel tenderloin is harder to dry out than, say, pork chops). Typically I prefer to purchase my tenderloin pre-seasoned - unless I'm making something like a pulled pork or a dish in the crock pot. This particular tenderloin was seasoned quite well - it had a nice robust garlic and pepper flavor, while also having a blend of herbs and spices, it provides pretty good flavoring without being too overwhelming on the taste buds.

I cooked this right in the oven and when done let it rest before cutting it up. The end result was a deliciously moist, tender pork tenderloin which provided a few meals. Even reheated in the microwave the pork was able to maintain it's moisture and tenderness without being chewy.
