Going European

Mediterranean Herbed Tenderloin and French Rice

I bought a Hormel Tenderloin that was already marinating in Mediterranean Herbs and olive oil. So I just popped it in the oven and made some rice to go with it. I found this recipe for French Rice that was pretty good. 

1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups of long grain rice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/8 to 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

In a saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1/2 tsp salt and the rice. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. In a large bowl, whisk lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, pepper, pepper flakes and remaining salt. Add rice and toss to combine.
