Lemon Drop Roasted Pork with Garlic Pepper Crust Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 1hr15min | Active Time: | Makes: 2 servings

I found a recipe, surprisingly, from the Mike’s Hard Lemonade website that I thought looked interesting! So I modified it a bit and came up with this one! Just a few extra ingredients really that I think spice it up. They have quite a few recipes using Mike’s products that sound interesting that I’ll prob try next

  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoon mike's hard lemonade or lemon drop cocktail
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  1. Heat oven to 450F.
  2. Chop the herbs to desired coarseness (I dont mind larger pieces but some people prefer more finely chopped herbs and dont enjoy mouthfuls of them).
  3. In a small bowl combine garlic, parsley, pepper, thyme, rosemary, and onions.
  4. In a small cup combine mike’s, olive oil, vinegar, and chili oil (if you chose to omit the chili oil use 1 full teaspoon of olive oil).
  5. Brush pork Tenderloins with mike’s olive oil mixture then rub garlic pepper mix on the tenderloins.
  6. Bake at 450 for approx 30 min until the pork is no longer pink in the center – let stand 5-10 min before serving.
