Sauteed onions give this tender, savory pork tenderloin a delicious rich sweetness. My meat-loving husband said it was very tasty!
1 (2 lb) pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 cups sliced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Trim fat from pork; cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the tenderloin, cutting about 2/3 of the way through the meat. Place on a broiler pan sprayed with cooking spray.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter or margarine. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add thyme, salt and pepper. Spread mixture evenly over the tenderloin.
Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees F.
