Mustard Roasted Pork Tenderloin
3 lbs Pork tenderloin
1 cup Whole Grain Mustard
¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
¼ cup chopped Italian Parsley
2 T chopped fresh Thyme
8 cloves crushed Garlic
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the mustard, oil, parsley, thyme, and crushed garlic until well blended. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Rub the mustard marinade over the tenderloins. For best flavor, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight ideally, to allow the marinade to activate.
Preheat oven to 400°. Place the tenderloins on a roasting rack and roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, basting once. The pork will be done when the juices run clear after being poked with a fork (or 140° internal temperature). Remove the pork from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan over medium heat. Add both sugars and bring mixture up to a small boil, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Add the heavy cream, bring to a boil and continue to cook for additional 3 minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool slightly before service.
