Honey Dijon Mustard Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin was on sale today and I was in the mood for pork so I picked up a nice one for two. We had rice last night so it's pasta or potatoes today, mashed will do. Peas and carrots steamed and finished in butter and extra virgin olive oil complete the dish. I started with two strips of bacon in the frying pan and cooked them till crisp, then put them on paper towel to drain. In a small bowl mix
Honey Mustard Sauce
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
pinch of salt
French the pork tenderloin by cutting it into 2 inch lengths then standing on end and pounding flat. Produce department clear plastic bags work great for this. Coat one side of each piece with sauce and put them sauce side down in a hot pan with plenty of oil. Coat the other side with remaining sauce. Get a good sear on both sides and serve with a piece of bacon over top. I love pork done this way because it tastes great and is easy to make. This whole meal from start to serving took only 45 minutes and I wasn't working quickly.
