Easy & Fast Roasted Pork Tenderloin!

This is so EASY and so Fast its ridiculous! You can easily double or even quadruple if you have a large enough pan. The hint is to use an oven proof pan so you only have 1 pan to clean in the end. And serving it Italian Style on top of a bed of greens it makes a complete meal La Buona Cucina!

No salt seasoning I used Costco brand (enough to rub in and cover both sides of the pork)
pork tenderloin
olive oil
1 cup  or so of dry white wine
a fresh rosemary sprig if you have it

About a half hour before cooking (or you can do this literally just before cooking) rub the seasoning with some salt and olive oil all over the pork both sides right in the pan and allow to sir on counter top to come to room temp.
Preheat oven to 425
Heat up stove top to medium and place the pan on to brown both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side, its ready to flip when it easily pulls away from pan. Do not have too high of heat you just want a seal to the meat.
Now add 1/2 cup wine and allow it to boil  just for a few seconds and place in oven.
Cook until it reaches a temp of 145 (medium rare) - 155 (well done) this takes about 10-15 minutes.
Allow it to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
 Note: take temp in middle and that will be the rarest section noting that the end pieces will be more well done. I always go for a temp of 145 so the middle is medium rare and the ends are well done, something for everyone.
Place the pork right on top of salad greens in a platter with the Rosemary sprig on top.
Easy Reduction Sauce: In the very same pan with all the good bits stuck to bottom (aka favor) add 1/2  wine and 1/2 cup water cooking on top of stove high heat scraping the bottom and whirling around until reduced. You can also add a tab of butter before the wine and this will make a more lush sauce. Note to self : ) Use oven mit for handle!
Serve Italian Style right on top of a plate greens using the sauce and the heat of the pork to both flavor and soften the greens underneath......Delizioso!
