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. 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.

"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. "

New go-to recipe!

My family loves this recipe, the sauce is amazing. I sometimes double it depending on what I'm serving this with. It's quick, healthy and elegant enough for company.

Quick & Healthy

This recipe was so easy and turned out so good... there weren't any leftovers and it was just the two of us, I am not ashamed! Simply amazing, I served with steamed fresh green beans... will be making again many, many times!

Super moist and delicious! Tangy bite to the sauce!
Easy & Delicious

This dish was amazing, and so easy to prepare. I doubled the recipe, because I could't find a 1 lb. pork loin. But my husband and I were happy to have leftovers. I did cut the vinegar in half with water, felt like it might be too tangy, and it still had that sweet and sour taste. We will definitely make this again.

Fast Prep
Best ever Pork Tenderloin

Can't wait to make this again! It was the most tender, moist and flavorful pork tenderloin I have ever had.
