Worthy of a special occasion, but easy enough to pull off on a weekday, time-friendly pork tenderloin is used for a stunning plated dish to add to your winter meal plan. Roasted with a maple mustard smear, and adorning a wintery pilaf of Brussels sprouts, rice, and seasonal fruit, it’s a perfect pork dinner that will have diners reaching for seconds.
Pork cooks quickly in this high-temperature roast, allowing you to skip the step of searing on the stovetop. The oven makes the crust for you.
Roasted Brussels sprouts can be made up to 1 day in advance and tossed with remaining pilaf ingredients immediately before serving. Pork can be made up to 2 days in advance, but is best enjoyed cold, as reheating will make it dry.
Preheat oven to 425 F (200 C).
Add pork to half of large baking sheet. In small bowl, combine mustard and maple syrup; spread evenly over pork. Roast for 10 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts, oil, and salt to other side of baking sheet, toss, and add back to oven. Roast until internal temperature of pork is 160 to 170 F (70 to 75 C); remove pork to plate to rest.
For pilaf, add roasted sprouts to bowl and toss with remaining ingredients. Add pilaf to plates; slice pork and place on top of rice. Garnish with additional rosemary and serve.
