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
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
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.
