Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce

Pork is an inexpensive, flavorful, and versatile meat that lends itself to a variety of preparations and dishes — and helps to keep an everyday menu interesting and appealing. For this recipe, Lucinda sears a tenderloin and serves it with a savory sauce of mustard and sour cream.


Prep time: 10 Minutes

Total time: 45 Minutes

Yield: Serves 6



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pork tenderloins (¾-1 pound each) trimmed
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper; transfer to skillet and cook, turning, until browned all over, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover skillet; cook pork, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer registers 150°, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pork from skillet, wrap in aluminum foil, and let rest 10 minutes (reserve skillet with juices).
  2. To juices in skillet, add mustards, and sour cream, and any accumulated juices from resting pork; whisk over medium heat until heated through (do not boil). Add water if sauce is too thick.
  3. Slice pork thinly and serve with pan sauce.
