This easy pecan-crusted pork tenderloin is a tasty way to prepare this classic cut of meat.  Simply marinate the pork tenderloin in apple cider, rub with a sugary mustard mixture, and roll in chopped pecans, then bake for 25 minutes. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine apple cider and pork in a zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 3

Remove pork from bag; discard cider. Combine sugar and next 4 ingredients (through garlic); rub over pork. Roll pork in pecans. Place pork on broiler-pan rack coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160°. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes.

Great flavor. I would sear the pork before putting on the rub next time. Chop the nuts very fine to make them stick better. Delicious!
