Source: Sue Krapfl, Country Junction Restaurant, Dyersville, Iowa
8 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
In a food processor, combine the olive oil, garlic cloves and herbs. Process until smooth, adding enough olive oil to make it a spreadable consistency. Sear the tenderloin on all sides, and rub the above mixture over the pork tenderloin. Roast at 250 degrees F until the internal temperature is about 140o, about 40-45 minutes. About 5 minutes before removing the pork tenderloins from the oven, spread the raspberry chipotle glaze over the top of the tenderloin. Slice the tenderloin to serve and drizzle with leftover glaze.
