Pork Tenderloin Au Jus

1 pork tenderloin (1 1/2 - 2 lbs.)
1 1/2 tsp. rubbed sage
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Mix sage, garlic, thyme, allspice, paprika and olive oil in a shallow bowl.  Rub over tenderloin coating completely.  Place tenderloin in a deep pot.  On med. high heat brown on all sides.  Turn heat to low.  Add 1/2 cup of water, cover pot and cook 1 hr.  Spoon juice over meat when serving.

Comments:  My idea for this dish came to me when I found that I had a package of McCormick Recipe Inspirations.  The recipe on the package was actually for apple pork chops but I decided to "Think With My Taste Buds" and create something different using the herbs/spice included in the package.  And I couldn't have chosen a better piece of meat to work with than the pork tenderloin.  It picked up all of the flavors, it was juicy and tender and my kitchen has had a wonderful smell all day.
