Perfectly tender Honey Dijon Garlic Roasted Pork Tenderloin only requires a few ingredients, and a few minutes of your time to get roasting in the oven. It’s a flavorful, juicy pork tenderloin that your family will love!
I am a huge fan of pork. It might be my favorite meat. Each cut offers a slightly different flavor. And let’s be real here, pork has so much flavor all by itself! You really don’t need to do much to really make it shine.
This recipe is super simple, as most pork recipes should be. A little bit of dijon, some honey, a little garlic and some basic seasoning and you have a wonderful dish. In this recipe I’ve used whole grain dijon. I love the flavor and look of it. You can use a regular dijon mustard if that’s what you have, but the whole grain is beautiful and offers a bit more of a subtle flavor.
Pork needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. The best way to get there is to use a meat thermometer. That way you can avoid undercooking, and more importantly, you can avoid overcooking your meat and drying it out.
The cooking time is just an estimate and will vary depending on the size and thickness of your particular cut. You know how you see different weights of cuts in the store? Well, that’s because every cut is slightly different in its size and thickness which means the cooking time is going to be slightly different as well.

My Killer Crockpot Carnitas are another big winner. Whenever I make them for people they absolutely get devoured. People are blown away by the flavor and rave about it!

Honey Dijon Garlic Roasted Pork Tenderloin
- 2 pork tenderloins
- ¼ cup whole grain dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Heat a cast iron skillet or oven safe skillet to high heat. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together dijon mustard, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub each pork tenderloin with the sauce until thoroughly coated.
- Pour olive oil into the skillet. Sear tenderloins on each side, using tongs to turn. Use any remaining sauce to coat the pork again. Once the outside is seared, slide the skillet into the preheated oven and roast until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
