Tuscan Pork Tenderloin {Freezer Prep}

Tuscan Pork Tenderloin is packed with the most savory flavors, but is also so simple to assemble. Easy and jam packed with flavor. Win-Win! 

Tuscan Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is one of my go to freezer prep meals.

When I buy a bulk package of pork tenderloin, it is really easy to put each into a bag and add some spices or make a sauce and toss in the freezer for a future meal.


Today I am sharing my Tuscan Pork Tenderloin recipe, but if this type of prep is your jam too, take a look at the Honey Apple Pork Tenderloin, Moroccan Pork Tenderloin, and the Sriracha Maple Ginger recipes!

My preference for this recipe is to bake it in the air fryer, but you could do this in the oven no problem. I will provide directions for both.

I write my recipes for one single pork tenderloin for 2-3 people, but if you have a larger family you can easily prep 2 and store them together. This recipe is easily doubled ( I personally wouldn’t double the rosemary, though)

My love affair with Tuscan flavors started with this Tuscan Stew. It was my friend Denise at Sweet Peas and Saffron that told me that I need to crush up the fennel seeds for best flavor.

Since she told me that, I have been playing around with dried fennel, and this is the recipe that was the winner!
