This simple recipe combines bold flavors with a lean and mild meat. Pork tenderloin is roasted with a very simple combination of mustard, garlic, and herbs.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 to 1 pound each
  • 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried leaf summer savory, or use dried leaf thyme or a combination, such as fines herbes
  • Dash ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Line a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan with foil. Lightly grease the foil.
  3. Trim the pork tenderloins of excess fat and wash; pat dry.
  4. Place the pork tenderloins in the prepared pan. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Rub over the pork tenderloins (top and sides).
  5. Roast the pork for 45 to 55 minutes, or until it registers at least 145 F on a meat thermometer which has been inserted into the center of the thickest part of a tenderloin.
  1. Remove from the oven, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

Serves 4 to 6.
