My husband is pretty excited that I have finally started making pork & am actually enjoying it too! This was the first time I have made a pork tenderloin in the oven. The dijon mustard & brown sugar gave it such a great flavor & it came out so tender & juicy. I will definitely be making this again!

1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
Generously season all sides of tenderloin with salt & pepper. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Brown all sides of pork. About 4 minutes on each side. I did about 1 minute on the ends too.
Place pork in an oven safe dish. Brush with dijon mustard.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top & pat a bit so it melts into the mustard.
Bake uncovered in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until the internal temperature is 170 degrees. The juices burnt a bit but it didn’t affect the flavor at all.
Slice & serve.
