Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin Ingredients

This is one of the easiest pork tenderloin recipes you’ll find. Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • pork tenderloin
  • G Hughes sugar free honey mustard (or a lower calorie honey mustard)
  • Swerve Brown (or a brown sugar substitute)
  • salt and pepper

Easy enough, right?

If you have trouble finding either the Swerve Brown or G Hughes sauce (I found both at Walmart) or want to make swaps with what you have at home, they should work fine as long as you keep the amounts consistent. 

Roasting the Pork Tenderloin

I tested this honey mustard pork tenderloin three ways. Unlike my Cuban style baked pork tenderloin, this recipe uses more sauce during cooking and requires adding what I’m dubbing a little foil canoe of flavor to roast the pork in. 

This keeps all your juices contained for both maximum flavor absorption and making a saucy glaze after roasting. If you don’t have foil on hand, you can bake it directly on the baking sheet. But you’ll want to remove the pork tenderloin from the oven a few times during roasting to spoon some of the sauce on top. 

reducing the remaining juices to a sauce after roasting

After roasting, I’d highly recommend following the steps to reduce the remaining juices to a glaze while the pork rests. It adds tons of flavor and takes up some time so you’re not tempted to cut into the pork too soon. 

What to Serve with Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin

You can serve this pork with all kinds of stuff, but the starchy carbs are obviously always a great idea. Here’s a handful of ideas:

  2. Place the pork in the foil and sprinkle the salt and pepper on top. (For best results, let the pork rest, covered with the salt and pepper, at room temp for 20-30 minutes before continuing.)

  3. Mix the honey mustard and brown sugar in a bowl before brushing it on top of the pork tenderloin. Don't close the foil.

  4. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the thickest part of the pork tenderloin is cooked through or reaches an internal temp of 165F. (Optional: remove the pork about halfway through cooking to spoon some of the juices on top before returning to the oven.)

  5. Use tongs or a large spatula to lift the pork tenderloin from the foil and place it directly on the baking sheet. Let the pork rest for 10-20 minutes before cutting into it.

  6. Optional: Carefully add the remaining juices to a small saucepan over high heat and reduce to a sauce. Stir/swirl the juices until thick, about 2-3 minutes.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! It’s super simple and tastes like you slaved in the kitchen for hours! It’s perfect for summer because you’re not standing in front of a hot cooktop, and it’s perfect for cooler months because it so comforting. My hubby rated it a ‘10’ on a scale of 1-5 😂 and both kids ate it up! That’s another Mason win in our house!

    This is seriously the best pork tenderloin I’ve ever had! We served it with homegrown corn, asparagus and faux potatoes. My three and five year old kids even devoured it. AMAZING!

  • 5 stars
    Love how easy this recipe was! I added a little spice with chilli pepper and it was delicious. Making the foil “boat” really helped to soak up the flavor. Will repeat soon

    Super easy to put together, I served it over bowties in a cream of mushroom sauce with green beans and it made a well-rounded, delicious dinner.

    I was hesitant to try this recipe because I hate all flavors of mustard, but I’m so happy I decided to give it a go! The sauce goes so well with the pork. We paired it with mashed potatoes and corn. I will be making this again!

    Loved this recipe! The tenderloin came out so juicy and moist. My pet peeve with pork tenderloin is that it is usually dry. I had to make honey mustard from scratch because I did not have any honey mustard let alone sugar free. I am definitely making my pork tenderloin like this 9 out of 10 times!

    I’ve made this as a pork tenderloin and also used the mix of sauces and spices on pork chops and both were great! Paired it with some saurkraut (my family traditionally adds a copious amount of brown sugar and caraway seeds so I subbed swerve brown in the ‘kraut too and nobody noticed) and roasted brussels sprouts.

    Growing up Jewish, my mom never made pork. But since I don’t keep kosher I figured I’d give this a whirl. I had never touched pork in my life let alone cooked it and this was easy as pie to follow! I used the Trader Joe’s honey pale ale mustard and a little less artificial sugar since the mustard is somewhat sweet. Otherwise, this came out tender and delicious! My toddlers love it too!
