Greek Style Pork Tenderloin Dinner

Here is an easy weekday meal, delicious enough to serve for weekend company. I really hope you try it.

  • 2 strips of pork tenderloin about 1 1/2 lbs
  • 3 lbs of potatoes, peeled and cubed 
  • 1 large onion, slivered
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large red pepper, cubed
  • 2 zucchini, cubed 
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • 3/4 chicken broth
  • Fresh lemon, (optional)
  1. Season the meat with the salt and oregano.
  2. Sear all sides of the pork in a hot pan on medium high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil until golden brown.
  3. Place onto a baking pan and bake in a preheated oven at 425 for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and cover in foil and let rest until the vegetables are cooked. 
  • In the remaining oil, add the potatoes, oregano and seasoning salt. Cook for about 6-8 minutes until the potatoes begin to brown.
  • Add the onion and garlic, cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, cover and cook until the potatoes are tender, about another 8 minutes.
  • Add the pepper and zucchini, cover again for another 5-8 minutes until tender crisp. 

  • Delicious served with Judy's Tzatziki Sauce on the side.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over everything to elevate the flavours. Awesome! 


  1. this looks amazing! Can't wait to try it!

  2. Love this and the fact that you sort of fry the potatoes before cooking them - releasing all the browning flavours!!! Sounds absolutely delicious Charlotte! Aren't pork tenderloins wonderful? This gives me yet another wonderful option on how to prepare them! Oh, and Judy's Tzatziki Sauce - delish.

  3. Thank you for this delicious recipe! I served it for 9 ( slightly increased quantities!) for lunch today and it was highly successful. I made a tzatziki sauce and added a plateful of freshly picked tomatoes as a side dish, it didn't need anything else! Yummy.
