Honey-Dijon Pork Tenderloin

This is where piquant meets sweet…

Juicy pork tenderloin drizzled with a sweet and savory sauce was delectable for dinner last night.

Pork is way up there on my list of favorites and it doesn’t get much easier than this tenderloin with its few basic ingredients ~ a little honey, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and tarragon.  It’s quick and easy to throw together for dinner tonight.

This recipe is a keeper and it will have a repeat performance here ~ cooked on the grill, whenever it warms up!

Honey-Dijon Pork Tenderloin


1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon dried tarragon
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper


Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking pan with foil, place meat in pan.
In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients, brush over pork.
Bake 25-30 minutes, basting with sauce every 10 minutes.
Cook until pork has slight blush of pink in center and meat thermometer registers 160 degrees.
Let stand 5 minutes.
Cut diagonally into slices.
