Apple Mustard Pork Tenderloin is seasoned pork, roasted in the oven for a quick, flavorful meal. This easy pork recipe is perfect for company, but simple enough for a weeknight dinner!
Apple Mustard Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is such a versatile cut of meat. From stir frying to grilling to roasting, the options are endless. Since pork tenderloin is a lean cut, a glaze helps keep the meat moist and tender as well as adding loads of flavor. I reduced some apple cider, added brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire and a few dollops of grainy mustard to make a delicious glaze with loads of flavor.
If you have some extra time, try brining your pork for an hour before roasting to ensure every slice is juicy. I mix 1 tablespoon of kosher salt and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a cup of warm (not hot) water. Place in a large Ziploc bag with the pork and brine for 30 minutes to 2 hours before roasting or grilling.
Simple Dinner Recipes
After the chaos of the holidays, it’s time to get back to reality. Quick and simple dinner recipes are needed as the kids head back to school and meal time becomes hectic again. This glazed apple mustard pork tenderloin is elegant enough for dinner guest, yet you won’t break a sweat making it. I served this with sauteed apples, but applesauce would be a marvelous pairing as well. These Crispy Smashed Potatoes are always a hit and a yummy side dish.
