Apricot Pork Tenderloin

I forgot to take a picture of this before we ate it (day after photo wouldn't do it justice), but it was mighty yummy (and super easy)! I got this recipe from Jed's aunt Denise.

2 TB. olive oil

Mix Together -
1 1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Glaze - Mix together
2/3 c. apricot preserve
4 TB. worchestireshire sauce
1/2 tsp. ground ginger

Line pan with foil (makes for easier clean up). Put tenderloin in pan and rub the olive oil over it. Mix the thyme, salt and pepper together and sprinkle (or rub) all over. Spoon half of the glaze over tenderloin. Cook at 425 for 15 minutes. Remove and cover with remaining glaze. Cook an additional 10-15 minutes (or until pork reaches 160 degrees). Remove from oven and cover with foil. Let it sit for another 10-15 minutes to finish cooking. I actually had to cook mine for a bit longer than this, but that's not surprising in my oven!
