Servings: 4


3 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed

¼ cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1½ teaspoons chopped fresh sage

2 teaspoons canola oil



1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

3. Place the skillet over medium-high heat (take care, the handle will still be hot), add vinegar, and boil, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Whisk in maple syrup and the remaining 2 tablespoons mustard; bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce is thickened.

4. Slice the pork. Add any accumulated juices to the sauce along with sage.

5.Serve the pork topped with the sauce.
