This is definitely a recipe to remember. And it's simple enough for anyone to memorize. The pork smelled wonderful when it was roasting, tasted spectacular, and is elegant enough for very picky guests. Thank you for including a temperature for judging doneness. I found it useful. And thank you for sharing this delicious pork recipe with us.

A great delicious tasting recipe! I added a little crushed garlic and a pinch of dried rosemary to the mustard mixture. The addition of the freshly crushed peppercorns really makes this dish special. I had two tenderloins so used 2 tablespoons of Dijon.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. Truly one of the best meals I have ever made. My family barely touches the side dishes when I make it. Great for a dinner party, also.
