Pork Tenderloin in Lemon-Vodka Sauce



Tender and lean, in a delicate sauce ~ that’s what I like about this pork tenderloin!





Pork tenderloin cooks quickly for easy dinners and tastes great.  I like that it’s not fussy and that it isn’t filled with fat.  It’s lean and mouthwatering with a little sauce, like this lemon-vodka sauce, that is adapted from a Cooking Light recipe.

It’s perfect for these cooler days and hassle-free to make!


Pork Tenderloin in Lemon-Vodka Sauce
Adapted

Ingredients:

1 (1½ pound) pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
½ cup vodka
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar

Method:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place meat on a baking sheet, rub with oil.
Whisk remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Brush tenderloin with mixture, coating well. 
Bake for about 20 minutes or until desired doneness, basting occasionally, and turning over in pan half-way through roasting time, to brown in juices.


ENJOY!!!

  1. I have not purchased a tenderloin in quite some time. I have satisfied myself with less expensive cuts. But that's a personal problem. I use lemon more and more and have come to believe it is one of the best flavors in the universe.

The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
