This totally did NOT taste like a 'diet' dinner. Just joined WW last week and let me tell you, this was the BEST meal so far. The pork was so tender. I've never cooked with Lemon Pepper seasoning before and it gave the pork such a wonderful flavor. I wasn't sure if both sides needed to be sprinkled with the seasioning, so I did anyway. I can't imagine it any other way. And the sauce that went over it was amazing. Just the perfect amount of mustard. I loved the taste of it with the pork. I just wish there was more sauce. PRIMO recipe. BTW, I typed this into WW recipe builder and it shot back 4 WW points per serving. I served this with a dinner salad. DH couldn't stop raving about it. I ate my 4 oz. and he ate the rest....YUMMY!! This is totally a keeper. Thanks!
I LOVED the tenderloin. The sauce? Not so much. It was bitter and salty, so much so that I couldn't even taste the dijon. I tried adding honey, but that only helped minimally with the bitterness. Maybe you're supposed to use bottled lemon juice and not fresh? Anyway, I will definitely prepare tenderloin like this from now on, and there are tons of different spices that would go well on it! Thanks for the recipe! :)
Really liked this recipe. Will be making it often!
