My sister, who has always had a knack for tossing spices and ingredients together, introduced this pork tenderloin dish to our family at a barbecue she hosted. She worked at the ingredients until she came up with a recipe she could share with all of us. It's a healthy alternative to steak, easy to prepare, and can be made ahead of time. —Lisa Peters, Dewitt, New York

"Tasty, simple marinade. Sauce was good addition."

"It was quite tasty. The pork was moist and quite tender. The sauce was mild and enhanced the delicate taste of the tenderloin. I even put some of it on the roasted potatoes and green beans I made as an accompaniment. I did use light mayo in the sauce to cut some calories. Will make this again."

"I made this recipe as written as is my practice. It was mouth watering. So tender and the mustard sauce is the best. Don't change anything."
