How To Make maple mustard pork tenderloin

  • 1
    Season pork with black pepper; set aside.
  • 2
    In an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. When hot, place pork and cook on one side until brown. Flip it and transfer in a 375ºF preheated oven; cook for 18-22 minutes depending on the size of the loin.
  • 3
    When internal temperature reaches 140-145ºF, remove from the heat and place tenderloin on a board with a folded sheet of aluminum on top to keep warm.
  • 4
    Return skillet on the stove and remove excess oil. Add clarified butter and turn the heat to medium. When hot, add onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and rosemary; sauté for 1 minute. Pour white wine to deglaze the bottom of the pan, scraping any brown bits.
  • 5
    When liquid is half reduced, add maple syrup, mustard and cayenne pepper; stir and cook the sauce down until turns into syrupy texture, about 8 minutes. Spoon it over the pork. 2 servings
