Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin

Hi Friends!

I feel like there are two kinds of people in this world- those who love all condiments and use them regularly and those who tend to focus more on the food and less on what goes on top. For most of my life, I’ve fallen into category number two. Growing up I ate my hot dogs plain, didn’t need anything to dip my fries into, hated having anything smeared on the bun of my sandwich, etc. It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve come to appreciate what a good condiment can add to a meal.

The problem I have with a lot of condiments, however, is that many are loaded with unhealthy and unnecessary ingredients like salt and sugar. I prefer homemade versions of most condiments for this reason. But, when French’s reached out to me about creating a recipe using their #naturallyamazing mustard, all it took was a quick check of the ingredients to get me on board.

Here are the ingredients in their Classic Yellow Mustard:

Distilled vinegar, water, no. 1 grade mustard seed, salt, tumeric, paprika, spice, natural flavors and garlic powder.

That’s an ingredient list I can get on board with! Mustard is great year round, but it’s especially great for adding flavor to summer foods. With all the grilling we’ve been doing, I can think of tons of dishes I’ll be adding mustard to in the future for a pop of flavor!

Plus, my hubby loves mustard and it’s not something I do a lot of cooking with, so I thought it would be a fun challenge to create a recipe using it! Hubby and I have been talking a lot this summer about how we need to start marinating our meats before we cook them for some added flavor and that got me thinking about using mustard in a marinade!

I developed this marinade to use on pork tenderloin and it turned out really well!

Here’s the recipe:

Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin
A simple, flavorful marinade to use on pork or chicken prior to roasting or grilling.

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup French’s Classic Yellow Mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon worchestershire sauce
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin

  1. Combine first six ingredients in a large ziploc bag.
  2. Add pork tenderloin and squeeze to remove excess air from the bag.
  3. Marinate pork at least 4 hours or overnight, turning the bag occasionally to ensure all meat is coated in the marinade.
  4. When ready to cook either 1) remove pork from bag and cook on the grill or 2) remove pork from bag and sear on all sides in a hot pan, then transfer to a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until pork reaches a temperature of at least 145 degrees.

If you pan sear the pork, you may end up with some excess liquid in your pan. Just drain and continue to sear until pork gets a nice golden brown outer coating.


We’re both big fans of this recipe. It made the meat super tender and added a wonderful flavor to the pork, which is something we usually eat pretty plain.

Plus it was delicious with some crunchy summer green beans! I cooked this one in the oven but it would also be super easy to do on the grill.
