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!

  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.
