Herbed Pork and Red Potatoes

This recipe is wonderful because it's not only tasty, but the potatoes are a built-in hot side dish! We made it for our anniversary party, and our guests were more than impressed. —Kate Collins, Auburn, Washington

    Very good seasoning. My roast could have come out a little earlier, but it was still delicious!

    I used the Herb Rub - wrapped the tenderloin with the herb rub & more oil in foil and let it bake in a baking pan = the flavor was wonderful!
