Spiced Pork Tenderloin With Honey Mustard

Food.and.Wine1's picture
pork tenderloin is low in fat, it tends to dry out, so be careful not to overcook it—this recipe needs just 20 minutes in the oven. Melissa Rubel Jacobson serves a stellar honey mustard alongside it to add moistness and sweet-spicy flavor. Picture Credit: John Kernick Recipe By: Melissa Rubel Jacobson Pairing Notes: Pork is an adaptable meat, light enough to go with full-bodied white wines or reds. For this seed-crusted roast, pour an oak-aged Chardonnay from Napa Valley. For more recipes, please visit Foodandwine.com
Ingredients
  Mustard seeds 3 Tablespoon
  Fennel seeds 1 Tablespoon
  Crushed red pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Pork tenderloins 28 Ounce (2 In Number, 14 Ounce Each)
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Kosher salt To Taste
  Grainy dijon mustard 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Traditional dijon mustard 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Honey 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a mortar, lightly crush the mustard and fennel seeds with the crushed red pepper. Set the pork tenderloins on a rimmed baking sheet and season them with salt and pepper. Spread the crushed spices on the baking sheet and roll the pork tenderloins in the crushed spices to coat them.
2. Roast the pork tenderloins for about 20 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of each tenderloin registers 145°. Transfer the pork tenderloins to a cutting board and let them rest for 10 minutes.
3. In a small bowl, mix the mustards with the honey and season with salt and pepper. Slice the pork 1/2 inch thick and serve with the honey mustard.
