Take the tenderloin out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Film an ovenproof skillet with oil and sear the tenderloin over medium-high heat to brown all sides, about 5 minutes in all. If you're using a glaze, apply it now.
Soy, Ginger, and Garlic Glaze
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1/8 cup sugar
4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp. sake or rice wine
2 tsp. finely chopped fresh ginger
2 tsp. Asian sesame oil
Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl until sugar has dissolved. Combine the glaze and meat and throw in the oven.
I used a lot of Italian herbs and spices - like garlic powder, parsley, rosemary, oregano, black pepper. If you've got it and it's "Italian," throw it on. It'll be great! Trust me.
