Preheat/Temperature: 400°

Total Time: 30 min

Main Ingredients

  • 3 pounds pork tenderloin, whole
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1-1/3 cups vegetable or chicken broth


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a rack in a roasting pan, spray with nonstick spray. Remove any excess fat from the tenderloin. Season the tenderloin with salt and pepper.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sear the meat until it is golden brown on all sides, approximately 5 minutes.

3. Place the tenderloin on the rack and put in the oven. Roast to the desired doneness. (Pork is safely cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.), about 30 minutes.

4. While the tenderloins are roasting, bring the sauté pan to medium heat. Add the garlic and shallots, cook until soft, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and cook until slightly browned.

5. Add the mustard, honey, vinegar, thyme, salt, pepper, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and then simmer until the mustard reduces to a sauce consistency, about 10 minutes. Keep warm.

6. Remove the tenderloins from the oven and let stand 5-10 minutes before slicing. Carefully remove the fat from the pan juices. Pour the pan juices into the sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer.

7. Slice the roast and serve with the warm honey-mustard sauce.
