A summer grilling favorite... try my recipe for tangy lemon dijon herb-crusted pork tenderloin: a mix of vibrant herbs and mustard rubbed onto juicy pork tenderloin.
Ingredients
  • 1 pork tenderloin (approximately 1 pound)
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 lemon, zest grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Ground black pepper
  • Salt
Instructions
  1. First, prepare the marinade. Combine grated lemon rind, lemon juice, honey, garlic, dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, olive oil, thyme, rosemary, and a few shakes of ground black pepper and salt.
  2. Reserve about 3-4 tablespoons of the marinade on the side (you will use this later once the pork is cooked). Add the remaining marinade to a 1 gallon ziplock bag along with the raw pork tenderloin. Seal the bag completely. Refrigerate meat and extra marinade overnight.
  3. Next, preheat grill to a medium-high heat. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Let rest for 5 – 10 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, slice meat into ¼ – ½″ slices and brush the reserved marinade on top for the finishing touch.
