Pork tenderloin with honey-mustard sauce

Since the doll is minute meat, it is completely impossible to get a large amount of juice from it. In this recipe we will show you a simple sauce.


  • approx. 500 g of pork tenderloin
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard
  • 100 ml of water or broth
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 30 g of butter


  • Wash and dry the pork tenderloin.
  • Mix honey with sugar, apple cider vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and brush the doll with this mixture (keep some of the marinade aside).
  • Mix the rest of the marinade with stock or water and use this mixture as a sauce.
  • Bake at 200°C for about 24-28 minutes, basting a few times during this time (the doll must reach 65°C).
  • Remove from the oven and leave for another five minutes (it will still run during this time).
  • Pour the juice into a saucepan and soften with butter.

When preparing the pork doll, we must be careful that it does not dry out. Therefore, it is very important to use a meat thermometer during its preparation. We finish the medium rare variant (gently cooked) at a meat temperature of 65°C, if we want it medium (medium cooked), then up to 70°C. Medium rare is still a quarter raw, but safe to eat, medium is slightly more cooked, the meat is still beautifully pink inside.

Before preparation, it is also necessary to clean it of its silver blank, otherwise it would be stiff and would twist during frying. You will save the most work if you choose a doll that is not so overgrown. It is enough to stick a pointed and sharp knife just below this blank and pull to the edges.

Since we don’t get too much juice from virgin sirloin, we can make the sauce separately or from its baking. Potatoes in various preparations or vegetables prepared by blanching are an absolutely ideal side dish.
