Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

two pork tenderloins, about 2 pounds, trimmed and each tied like a roast to even the thickness
1 tablespoon coarsely cracked black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1

Grill or broil the pork, turning it with tongs so that it is browned on all sides and the meat feels springy when pressed, about 15 to 20 minutes, according to the thickness. The pork should be pink and juicy when cut an instant read thermometer inserted in the center should read 150 to 155°. Do not overcook.
Transfer the pork to cutting board and cover with foil. Temperature will continue to rise 5 to 10° as the meat rest. Let stand about five minutes.
