  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary minced
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1 orange juiced

  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate pork overnight or for at least 5 hours (see recipe). In a small bowl, combine first 6 ingredients (salt through orange zest); evenly rub mixture into tenderloin.
