  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Cut tenderloin into 9 slices and brush with olive oil. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Place the meat onto preheated grill. Grill until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. When finished, place pork on a plate, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. While pork is cooking, stir together sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, Dijon mustard, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, and horseradish in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and stir until smooth. Pour sauce over sliced tenderloin to serve.

Thanks so much for this recipe. Like the first reviewer suggested, we used this as a marinade and turned out wonderful. One thing I added was a TBS of Balsamic Vinegar. Can't wait to serve th...

We used this as a marinade for the pork tenderloin, and it came out great. I substituted brown mustard for the dijon, and we thought it was great. Not spicy, not vinegary, just perfect.

I was looking for a recipe that I could prepare and cook tonight for Pork Tenderloin. Most other recipes required marinating overnight. This recipe is so fast and simple yet so delicious and f...

incredible - just follow recipe and you will have an amazing dinner. served with brown rice and veggies, really really good

Excellent! The sauce was tangy, sweet, a bit spicy, and delicious. Very flavorful. I was worried even as someone who likes spicy food that this might be too much spice, but it was just right....
