Mustard Dill Pork Tenderloin

After a day of making 37 doz cookies, I was thrilled to be able to come home, throw this together in about 5 minutes, toss it in the oven & dinner was ready in about 40 mins.  Since, pork can be served at 140F, it doesn't need to cook for very long.   So, that makes it the perfect weeknight go to meal, giving chicken a break.     

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons dijon
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
2 lbs pork tenderloin
season with salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a small bowl mix together the olive oil, dijon, ground mustard, garlic & dill.  Pat the meat dry with a paper towel (this helps the mixture adhere).  Brush on the mustard dill mixture.  Season liberally with salt & pepper.  Place in oven & bake for 30 mins or until temperature reaches 140F.  

Serves 8-10 ppl
