Spicy Pork Tenderloin
We really enjoy roasted pork tenderloin. It’s versatile, easy and makes a good and easy dinner.
This one is a spicy dish packed with a combination of delicious flavors, thanks to
mustard, orange juice, honey, fennel seeds, mustard seeds and lots of pepper. It smelled sweet as it was roasting and I was afraid it would taste sweet ~ never fear, it turned out wonderfully with no sweet taste, just spicy goodness! Love the aroma of the fennel! Dijon
Pork tenderloin is always a good choice when trying to come up with a meal that will please most people. It reminds us of Mom’s great home cooking and the great flavors in this one will bring you a smile from everyone at your dinner table!
