One Pan Sweet Ginger Glazed Pork Tenderloin
- 3 medium pork tenderloins
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons grainy dijon mustard (or use the kind without the grains if you prefer)
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- fresh parsley for serving (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place a large oven-safe skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat.
- Season the pork tenderloins with salt and pepper on all sides.
- Add the olive oil to the skillet and once it's heated add the pork, searing it on all sides.
- While the pork is browning, add the garlic, thyme, mustard, ginger, brown sugar and soy sauce to a small bowl, whisking together to combine.
- Once the pork has browned on all sides, drizzle the glaze over the pork tenderloins and brush on all sides.
- Let the remaining glaze flow into the bottom of the skillet and place the skillet in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches about 150 degrees Fahrenheit (use a meat thermometer for this!).
- Once the pork reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the skillet from the oven and baste the pork with the glaze in the bottom of the pan before covering lightly with aluminum foil and resting for 5-6 minutes.
- Slice the pork after it has rested and serve with the remaining glaze.
- Instead of placing the skillet in the oven, cover the skillet with a lid on the stovetop and cook until the correct temperature is reached, turning the tenderloins once during cooking and basting with the glaze every few minutes.
- Rest and serve as directed in the recipe.
