6-Ingredient Pork Tenderloin Recipe Is Sweet, Savory & Totally Juicy (Ready in 30 Minutes)

Why do I always forget how easy it is to make a juicy and delicious pork tenderloin? We get into a chicken rut, then I’ll rediscover pork tenderloin and I’m always thrilled with the result for dinner.

This simple 6-ingredient pork tenderloin recipe is no exception. It’s sweet and savory, and totally juicy. And, it’s ready in only about 30 minutes. I made it for a family gathering, served with my bleu cheese mashed potatoes, and everyone raved about it (before it disappeared). Next time, I’m making two!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Italian or Mediterranean seasoning

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine the olive oil, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and seasoning.
  2. Pour the mixture into a baking pan. Roll the tenderloin in the mixture until it’s well coated all over. Season with sea salt and pepper, if desired. Cover pan with foil.
  3. Cook in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, basting with the mixture a couple of times, until meat reaches 140 degrees F.
  4. Serve with rice or potatoes and your favorite vegetables.
