This is a terrific recipe.  You can have a gorgeous dinner on the table in less than thirty minutes.    The red wine sauce is spectacular.  You’ll make it often and serve it over lamb, beef and even salmon.

My dear friend and gardening guru, Dellis , made this sauce last night, and was in raptures over it.

1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup red  wine vinegar

juice of l lemon

4 cloves garlic minced

3 generous tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade and marinate pork for 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator covered.

Remove pork from marinade and strain the marinade.  Cover the pork the garlic and rosemary and roast in a shallow, tin foil lined pan in a 400F oven for 20 to 30 minutes until meat thermometer inserted reads 150 F.  Remove from pan and tent and let set for a few minutes.  The temperature will increase to 155F.  Slice thinly and sauce with the red wine sauce.  Serves 4
