"A wonderful overnight marinade makes the pork so flavorful - serve with the delicious, creamy mustard sauce. A super dish for buffets and potlucks, as it doesn't need to be piping hot. I never cease to get many recipe requests for this one!"

light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons
minced fresh chives
This is good, but try it with Jack Daniels (or bourbon) instead of wine. Also, sauce has a little more flavor if you add a tablespoon of chopped green onions instead of chives. This recipe is good as a buffet dish because it can be served at room temperature.
This could easily have been much better than it was, merely by separating the sauce from the meat and choosing one or the other. The two together was an odd combination that just didn’t work well - a sort of teriyaki-ish meat with a (hot) mustardy, mayonnaise-y sauce. And hot it was!! After I mixed it up I knew if I couldn’t tolerate it Hubs never would, so I added quite a bit more sour cream and mayonnaise to tone it down – and it was still too hot. It ended up discarded. As for the meat, it was good enough on its own I guess, without the sauce that only made it kind of strange. Also, I preferred to roast this at 425 degrees, about 25 minutes; much better than the low and slow time and temperature directed. Interesting to try, but I wouldn’t consider repeating this.
This was a great recipe! It was so easy to make (so easy I was skeptical at first), but it tasted wonderful, and the pork was so tender. My husband even asked afterwards how I'd made it, and when he heard how easy the recipe was, tried it himself (and it worked for him too).
I added some cracked black pepper to the marinade (not much - a few twists) and baked the meat for longer than the recipe said - about 1 1/2 hours. For the mustard sauce I didn't have mustard powder so I substituted 1 teaspoon creole mustard, 1 teaspoon yellow mustard and 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish.
This is a really good pork tenderloin recipe. I used bourbon instead of wine and the pork didn't really need the mustard sauce. It was fine by itself. Although, the mustard sauce is to die for and I will use that on beef or anything else I can thing of! Be sure to use chives in the mustard sauce, it does make a difference.
This was a hit! I didn't have 8 hours to marinade the meat, but a couple hours is even enough to capture some of the flavor and make the meat extra tender. Instead of baking, I put the meat on my George Foreman rotisserie. Everyone loves the mustard sauce. I would even use it with beef tenderloin.
I substituted balsalmic vinigar for the red wine because that's all I had, and it turned out great. Very flavorful and the sauce was to die for!!
My husband raved about this. It made the house smell wonderful! The kids loved the meat, but thought the cream sauce was a little strong. DH loved the cream sauce, so I won't try to alter it. At first he thought it had horseradish in it, which he loves. I would make this for company in a heartbeat.
This is really, really great! The pork is terrific by itself, and like others, I used extra mustard. The sauce is better the next day, so put it together the night before, too. Spring for the chives!
