MUSTARD-MAPLE PORK TENDERLOIN

Pork tenderloin is about as lean as it comes so it's a great healthy option, but it shouldn't be overcooked as it can dry out. 

 

MAKES 4 SERVING/ TOTAL TIME 45 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed

2 teaspoons canola oil

¼ cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh sage

METHOD


STEP 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine 1 tablespoon mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl; rub all over pork. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145 degrees F, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.

STEP 2

Place the skillet over medium-high heat (take care, the handle will still be hot), add vinegar, and boil, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon, about 30 seconds. Whisk in maple syrup and the remaining 2 tablespoons mustard; bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

STEP 3

Slice the pork. Add any accumulated juices to the sauce along with sage. Serve the pork topped with the sauce.
