Pork Tenderloin Diablo
This is a great pork recipe. Mustard is a classic with pork, but when you add the extra zing of horseradish and cayenne, and then smooth it out with a little cream and butter, well, it's devilishly delicious.
Lean and versatile, pork tenderloin is equally comfortable at holiday dinners or busy weeknight meals. It's also a very user friendly cut of meat. Here are our favorite Chef John pork tenderloin recipes, including quick pork cutlets, porchetta, stuffed and rolled pork tenderloins, grilled pork tenderloins, and much more.
This pork recipe is fantastic. We loved the sauce. The horseradish and cayenne powder were not too overpowering at all. (I tripled the sauce recipe yet only kept the butter at 1 Tbs.) My husband grilled the pork tenderloin while I prepared the sauce inside. Company worthy! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Chef John.
This was excellent and quick. Did not have chives and substituted beef broth for chicken as that is what I had. I was surprised at how juicy this was. I browned the tenderloins (I cut mine into two pieces to fit in my cast iron skillet) and took it out after 23 minutes when they hit 145. I do agree this was a bit salty, and I love salt. I'd not salt the meat next time. Great with green beans and Parmesan noodles.
I'm not a pork fan but this dish is outstanding. I left out the horseradish but the sauce was still plenty "diablo" for our tastes. Next time I'll double it. This method of cooking pork is amazing. Juicy and so tender you can cut it with a fork. Chef John, you are tops!
I made this for Mother's Day. My family absolutely loved it. The recipe was spot on....the pork was cooked perfectly and the sauce was so delicious. I wouldn't change a thing and will definitely make this again. Thank you, Chef John!
Contrary to few of the reviews, I loved this recipe! The sauce is what put it over the top. I've been grilling tenderloins this way for quite some time and adding the sauce to my collection is a welcome addition. As a sidebar: Reviews are just that; REVIEWS!--AFTER you've tried the recipe. In addition to asking if the review was helpful Allrecipes should also ask about being "least helpful".
Followed recipe except I used dried chives instead of fresh. It was delicious and easy. Great for a weekday meal and for weekend indulgence. The pork was tender and juicy and the sauce flavorful with a small kick. Next time I made it I added dried tarragon (1/2 tsp). This made it even better. Thank you Chef John!
