My kids can be picky eaters. As a food blogger I try to expose them to different recipes but most of the time they just want plain chicken, pork or pasta. I was getting tired of making them the same thing so several months ago I came up with this orange mustard pork tenderloin for them to try. They ended up loving it and my oldest daughter even said she wanted it for dinner every night!

The best part about this dish is how easy it is to assemble. During the busy school week it is nice to have a dinner that the whole family will love and is quick to make. That is why this orange mustard pork tenderloin has become a regular on our weeknight menu. This meal goes well with a salad, roasted potatoes or even my kids choice, pasta.

I bet you probably have most of the ingredients on hand to make this dish. You will need orange juice, orange marmalade (or honey), soy sauce, grain mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, rosemary and of course the pork tenderloin. After trimming off any excess fat, place the pork in a shallow baking dish and pierce with a fork. Mix together the remaining ingredients and spoon the mixture over the pork. I like to reserve a little of the mixture to spoon over once cooked. Bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature is between 140-160 degrees. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes, slice and serve.
