Breathe New Life Into Your Dishes with Fresh Herbs. Whenever I bring up the subject of fresh herbs, I get a common question: How do I know when to use different herbs? To me, that's simply a matter of taste. Yes, there are classic combinations out there, but if you really enjoy the taste of thyme, then by all means, use it often. Not only do fresh herbs enhance flavors, they also act as a substitute for salt. I find that if I can add more flavor by using herbs, I can cut down on the amount of salt needed in a dish. Sure, you can use dried herbs, but keep in mind that they start to lose their flavor after about six months. I also find that fresh herbs just taste better.
  Garlic clove 1 Small, peeled and finely chopped
  Pork tenderloin 1 Pound, trimmed
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Teaspoon
  Tarragon 2 Tablespoon, chopped
  Thyme 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  Parsley 2 Tablespoon, chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), peeled and finely chopped
  Panko 3 Tablespoon (Japanese Breadcumbs)
  Dijon mustard 2 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season pork with salt. Heat a stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add oil. Add pork and sear on all sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side until nicely browned. Place skillet in oven and cook pork until it registers 140 degrees on an instant-read meat thermometer, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let pork rest 10 minutes on a wire rack placed over a rimmed baking sheet.
Preheat broiler. In a bowl, mix together tarragon, thyme, parsley, garlic, Panko and a pinch of salt. Brush pork lightly with mustard. Press pork into herb mixture, coating evenly on all sides.
Broil pork 6 inches from broiler, 1 minute per side, until breadcrumbs are toasted and pork is heated through. Slice thinly and serve.
