Mustard - Herb Crusted Pork TenderloinI found this recipe on my recipes that looked really simple yet elegant. I really loved the mustard and fennel together and the herb/panko coating was fantastic. The pork turned out very moist, tender, and so flavorful. This dish was a big hit with my husband, me, and our children. I will be making this recipe again and again.

    1. Kimber,

      I am sure it would work great! You will probably just have to adjust the cooking time. I hope you enjoy them!


    2. It was great! Baked them for 20 minutes (2 medium size pork chops and 1 large one). My boyfriend and I LOVED them! Thanks!

  1. I just have plain panko crumbs. Do you think that I could just add some seasoning to them and get the same effect? If so, what would you suggest?

    1. I would season them with dried basil, fresh parsley, dried oregano, garlic powder, and salt and pepper, to taste.

      I hope this helps.


    2. I made this on Saturday using your suggestion about creating seasoned panko. It was fantastic! My only regret is that I didn’t make two. My guy loved it too and asked if we could make it when his sister and brother-in-law come to visit in January.

  2. I loved the crust on this! Served it with polenta and sautéed swiss chard with roasted beets, delish. I tried getting mine to 165 as you state but it was already overcooked at 155. I think 145 with 10-15 min rest time under foil would be perfect.

  3. I have cooked your Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin many times and I have to say… it’s amazingly delicious each time.
