Easy Crusted Pork Tenderloin

This was very flavorful and moist, not to mention easy!!

2 lb. Pork Tenderloin
2 cups italian bread crumbs
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced

In a bowl mix together bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, olive oil and garlic. In a oven safe pan place your tenderloin and season with desired seasonings. I used a little garlic salt, onion powder, paprika, and fresh cracked pepper. Put the crumb mixture over the top of the meat and pat it until it covers then entire tenderloin. Bake @ 425 degrees for 35 minutes or until it reaches 160-165 degrees on a meat thermometer depending on how done you like your meat. Take it out of the oven and let it rest 5-10 minutes and ENJOY!

I used half this recipe and it was perfect for my family.
