  • 1.5-2 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1½ Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Private Selection™ Whole Grain Garlic Mustard
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds, for garnish (optional)
  1. Heat your oven to 450°F. Place a 12” cast iron in the oven and heat for 20 minutes.
  2. While the skillet is heating, rub 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the salt and the pepper over the pork tenderloin.
  3. Once the skillet is heated, swirl in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Place the prepared tenderloin in the skillet. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. While the tenderloin is baking, prepare the pomegranate-maple glaze. Whisk together the pomegranate juice, cornstarch, 2 sprigs of rosemary, maple syrup and garlic mustard in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until boiling, whisking often. Boil for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove the rosemary sprigs from the saucepan and discard.
  5. Once the tenderloin has baked for 10 minutes, remove it from the oven and flip it over. Turn the oven down to 400°F. Brush ⅓ of the glaze over the tenderloin. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip it again, and brush with another ⅓ of the glaze. Bake for another 5 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the loin registers at 145°F.
  6. Let the pork tenderloin rest for 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
  7. To plate, slice the tenderloin, spoon over the remaining glaze and garnish the platter with fresh rosemary sprigs and pomegranate seeds, if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
