Pecan-Roasted Pork Tenderloin

This is quick and easy to make and it tastes wonderful. I love the flavor that the brown sugar gives it - just a hint of sweetness.

Pecan-Roasted Pork Tenderloin

1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup French-fried onions
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 pork tenderloins (about 2 lb)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
olive oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Place pecans, onions, and sugar in food processor; process until coarsely chopped. Place mixture on plate. Season pork with salt and pepper; roll in pecan mixture until well coated and place 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Coat top of tenderloins with cooking spray. Bake 25–30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (for medium). Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. Let pork stand 5 minutes; then cut into 1-inch-thick slices.
