Mustard-Maple Pork Tenderloin

February/March 2006, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (209 votes)

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. Maple and mustard make a sweet-and-savory mahogany-colored sauce. A delicate note of sage gives it a wintery touch. Fresh thyme or rosemary also work if you prefer. Serve with barley, roasted squash and a Pinot Noir.



READER'S COMMENT:
"what a fantastic recipe!! I live in Scotland so had to replace the canola oil with sunflower and kosher salt with sea salt (less required) but the end result was excellent and so easy to make - would recommend - very satisfying dish. "

BEST thing I've eaten all week

The flavor of this was amazing. I browned the pork about 6 minutes in total and cooked in oven about 12. PERFECTION. I had to use brown sugar instead of maple syrup but otherwise followed recipe exactly. Absolutely delicious.

Delicious, quick, simple, no special ingredients

Fast, delicious, tender and lean pork dish

Made this exactly as shown. I browned for a wee bit longer under a lid because the oil was splashing and then cooked in the oven for just ten minutes. Make sure you can collect the juice from the loin and add it to your sauce. served over mashed red garnet yams and it was sooooo good. Would add a green vege next time--nothing fancy maybe green beans. Will make this over, and over, and again and again!

Perfect combo of sweet and tart, tender yummy pork dish,

This is so yummy. My 6 year old daughter loves the sauce. This is such an easy recipe, and has been added to my list of recipes I use often.
