Ingredients

The sauce

The pork

  • 1 ¼ lb. pork tenderloin
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced flat-leaf parsley

Directions

The sauce:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, thyme, salt and cayenne pepper. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the sauce into a separate small bowl.

The pork:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Trim any fat or silver skin from the pork tenderloin. Season with the salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick, ovenproof skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the pork tenderloin and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes total.
  4. Brush the pork with the 1 tablespoon of sauce that was set aside.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes, then thinly slice it.  Garnish with parsley and serve with the remaining sauce.
