Caraway-Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin


1. Combine the vinegar, olive oil, thyme, oregano, caraway seeds, shallots, garlic, and salt. Spread the mixture on the pork tenderloin.  Wrap the tenderloin tightly in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours and up to overnight in the refrigerator.

2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Remove the pork from the plastic wrap.

3. Roast the pork until it registers 145 degrees F on a meat thermometer, about 45 minutes.  After 30 minutes, raise the oven temperature to 450°F for the remaining cooking time.

4. Remove from the oven and allow the tenderloin to rest for 10 minutes covered with a foil tent.  Slice thinly and serve.
