Dean's Pork Tenderloin W/Mustard and Cornflakes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

I am a spoilt woman in the sense that my husband thinks nothing of going into the kitchen and whip up some amazing food, with or without a recipe. The other night he made this dish and we found the combination of mustard and cornflakes was just delicious. He cooks with a 'dash of this', 'a handful of that' etc so the measurements are best estimates. No salt/pepper was added, but you could do this before adding the mustard, if you like

I love finding a recipe that has very few ingredients and lots of flavour! This is one of those special recipes. My tenderloins were quite large and I probably should have added a bit more mustard and corn flakes. It was great anyway! Made for 1, 2, 3 tag game. Thanks Deantini! :)

Followed the recipe right on down & was most happy with the results ~ The grainy mustard really did the trick here with it's great flavor! So simple to make ~ Will definitely be what's served the next time we have company for dinner (as long as it's not my vegetarian son & DIL, that is)! Thanks for a great pork treat!

You are a lucky woman indeed deantini. What a great recipe this is. Loved the flavor that the 3 ingredients impart. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. My tenderloin was large and thick, so I seasoned it with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper and cooked it in a hot pan for 15 minutes then finished it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. It was perfectly cooked, tender, juicy and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing your dh's recipe. It is wonderful, made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
