Maple-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

My husband and I think this roasted pork tenderloin tastes like a fancy restaurant dish, but it couldn’t be simpler to make at home. The maple-mustard glaze makes it extra special. It's a modification of a recipe we first tasted at a friend's house. —Colleen Mercier, Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Mix seasonings; sprinkle over pork. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium heat; brown tenderloins on all sides. Transfer to a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. pan. Roast 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, for glaze, in same skillet, mix syrup, vinegar and mustard; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes; remove from heat.
  • Brush 1 tablespoon glaze over pork; continue roasting until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 7-10 minutes, brushing halfway through with remaining glaze. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
