|Honey Mustard Marinated Pork Tenderloin|
- 1 Cup Spicy Dijon Mustard
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- Juice of 1 Large Lemon
- 2 Pork Tenderloins
- 1 Large Storage Bag
|Use a plastic storage bag for marinating|
Perforate the pork with a fork to allow the marinade to get inside the meat. Move the pork to a large storage bag. In a large bowl, mix together the mustard, honey, and lemon juice. I like to use a coarse grain mustard to give it some extra spice, but it depends on who I am cooking for. A milder, smoother mustard will work fine. Just don't use yellow mustard here. Don't worry about straining out the seeds or pulp from the lemon. It helps with the flavor. Pour the marinade in to the bag with the pork. With the bag sealed, work the pork and marinade around to get the pork completely covered. Let the pork sit in the fridge for at least 12 hours, preferably overnight.

the flavor. The smoke is just to enhance the flavor,
not to actually cook the meat.

Cheesy Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Asparagus
I've served this with a few different things. Salad. Mixed veggies. Roasted potatoes. Usually I'll have rolls in the freezer I can throw in the oven. This time, I served the pork with some cheesy mashed potatoes and asparagus sautéed with onions and garlic.
