Directions

  1. In a bowl large enough to hold the tenderloin, combine feta brine, garlic, and Dijon mustard. Stir to emulsify. Add in the pork and sprinkle in a good pinch of coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Let marinate for at least an hour – but 4 hours is better. :)
  2. Preheat oven to 400F.
  3. To cook the pork, heat a grill pan on medium high heat, and coat the bottom of the pan in olive oil. When the pan / oil is hot, add in the tenderloin and let sear really well on all sides. Only turn the pork when a nice golden brown crust has formed. Toss into the oven to finish cooking, approx. 12 minutes.
  4. Remove the pork from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board. This allows the meat to reabsorb it’s juices, keeping it super moist. Slice on a diagonal and serve with your favourite salad.
