Rosemary Dijon Pork Tenderloin

Make an elegant but easy meal with pork tenderloin.  I bought this one from Trader Joe's and made a simple and delicious meal. Here's what I did... 

I stuffed it with garlic.   
 And then I rubbed it with salt, pepper and chopped, fresh rosemary.   
Next I slathered it with dijon mustard.  
 Then, I popped it in a 350 degree preheated oven and cooked it until the internal temperature reached 160 degrees (about 40 minutes).  
 Let the pork sit for 10 minutes before cutting.  I served it with roasted kale and cauliflower.  Simply toss vegetables in extra-virgin olive oil and then bake until tender.  Kale roasts quickly in about 10 minutes (if you leave it in too long the leaves get too brittle).  The cauliflower will take about 45 minutes.  I put the cauliflower in a few minutes before the pork and roasted the kale while the pork was sitting.  


  1. Second time I made this dish in less than a week. This time my teenage daughter's friend ate with us and I must say again it was enjoyed by all. Thanks for such a great receipe. Was it your invention?

  2. That's so wonderful! And the best part - it looks like a bunch of work, but is so easy - even for a weeknight.
