In this recipe, Creole mustard and maple syrup make a quick glaze and sauce for this lean and delicious pork tenderloin. This dish a great meal for any night of the week, and it's special enough for a weekend dinner.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloins
  • salt and pepper or a grill seasoning blend for chicken or pork (I used Kickin' Chicken)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil, or enough to coat the pan
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preparation:

Line a baking dish with nonstick foil. Heat oven to 350°.

Wash pork, trim excess fat and silver skin, and pat dry. Sprinkle with the grill seasoning or a seasoning blend, or use salt and pepper.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add the pork and sear on all sides. Meanwhile, combine the syrup and mustard in a large cup or small bowl, whisking until smooth.

Arrange the pork in the baking dish and roast for 12 minutes. Brush generously with about half of the mustard mixture and roast for 5 more minutes, or until the pork registers about 155° on an instant read thermometer in the thickest part of a tenderloin. Meanwhile, put the remaining sauce in the microwave and heat to boiling, or put the sauce in a saucepan and heat on the stovetop.

Let the pork rest for 5 minutes, then slice and drizzle with the remaining heated sauce.
Serves 4 to 6.
