Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp olive oil — divided
  • 1 cup baby spinach — chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon — 2-3 slices
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt — divided
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper — divided
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder — divided
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning or Badia all-purpose seasoning

Instructions

  10. Add the pork tenderloin to the skillet, secured side down.
  11. Cook for 2 minutes per side for all 4 sides. then transfer the pan to the oven and cook for additional 20 minutes, until a thermometer inserted in the middle reads 145 F -150 F.
