Honey-Mustard Glazed Pork Tenderloin

“Here’s a well-seasoned recipe originally for the grill,” explains Virginia Smith in Peoria, Illinois. “But we liked it so much that I changed it for the oven just so we could enjoy it all year long!”

    Very juicy. I would cut back on the thyme and oregano for my taste. I roast just to 145 degrees for a small tenderloin for two.

    This is my go to recipe for pork tenderloin. I occasionally leave the spices on it, but more often I just throw it together and put it in the toaster over. No muss, no fuss! Always tastes wonderful, and makes great leftovers.

    Loved it! Highly recommend! I did not marinate it since I wasn't prepared but it still came out excellent! I reserved some glaze & heated till it was saucy & poured over tenderloin when finished to give it more sauce. YUMMY!
