Recipe Source:  Eating Well

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
2 tsp. canola oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp. Maple syrup 
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh sage

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl; rub all over pork. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145°F, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the skillet over medium-high heat (take care, the handle will still be hot), add vinegar, and boil, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon, about 30 seconds. Whisk in maple syrup and the remaining 2 tablespoons mustard; bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Slice the pork. Add any accumulated juices to the sauce along with sage. Serve the pork topped with the sauce.
