How to Cook Pork Tenderloin
Tenderloin wants to be, well, tender. It’s hard to mess up, all you need to do is not overcook it. The only thing to remember is to check the internal temperature—when you get a reading of 145°F on an instant read thermometer, that pork is done! Pull it out of the oven right away. Here’s how to cook pork tenderloin in the oven:
Make the pork crust by blitzing the pistachios, ground mustard, thyme, garlic and pepper in a food processor.
Roll the pork tenderloin (or pork tenderloins) in the crust until it’s well-coated.
Roast! About 30 minutes at 375° F, but don’t go by time alone! Check that temp.
Whip up the creamy wine-mustard sauce.
Pull the pork from the oven, let it rest for just a couple of minutes. Then, slice and serve!
