Weeknight Wonder

My daughter had a choir concert at 6:00 last night, and I got home from work at 5:00.  I needed to put dinner on the table...FAST!
This sweet and savory pork tenderloin is one of her favorites, and it takes less than 30 minutes to make.  Leftovers are great cold in a main dish salad.

Pork Tenderloin with Maple Glaze
Adapted from epicurious.com
(click here to print)

1 lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed
1 tsp. rubbed dried sage
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 Tbsp. olive oil

1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat.  Rub the pork with the sage and sprinkle evenly with garlic salt.  Add the oil to the skillet, then sear the pork on all sides until brown, about 5-7 minutes.

Combine maple syrup, vinegar, and mustard.  Add to skillet.

Transfer skillet to oven and bake the pork tenderloin for 12-14 minutes, or until pork registers 150 degrees.  Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes.

Slice pork and spoon maple syrup glaze over top.

This does look like a great weeknight recipe! I wonder if it would work in a crockpot?
