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.
