Pork Tenderloin and Mustard-Wine Sauce
The mustard-wine mixture reduces while the pork roasts, forming a simple pan sauce to drizzle over the meat.
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Whisk together wine, water, and mustard. Season pork on all sides with salt and pepper.
Heat a 12-inch ovenproof saute pan over medium-high heat; add oil. Sear pork until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes total. Remove from heat. Carefully add mustard-wine mixture. Transfer pan to oven.
Roast pork, spooning sauce over meat about halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 145 degrees, about 15 minutes. Let pork rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Drizzle with sauce.
