This week, a simple recipe that is quite simply mouthwaterring.

The pork tenderloin is a piece of meat with exceptional qualities by its taste and tenderness. It is easy to find and fairly cheap to buy while producing a very impressive dish on the table.

As with all tender meat cut, you should avoid overcooking it which will tend to harden the soft flesh.

Adding a generous amount of Dijon mustard may be surprising but it must be remembered that the mustard will lose much of its flavor when cooked. The layer of mustard will mildly flavor the meat while protecting it from drying out during the first half of the cooking.
