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?

pork tenderloin with salt and pepper in foil, honey mustard brown sugar sauce, and the pork coated in the sauce

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 baked Cuban 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:

I’m a baker, not a chef so forgive a possibly stupid question. Can this be done with pork chops instead of pork loin? Thanks!

I would think so. They'll cook a bit differently than a tenderloin just based on thickness. Also, you might consider searing them in a pan first and finishing in the oven since you have all the surface area with chops.

What would be an alternative equivalent that is as lean but beef not pork?

Thanks
