Pork tenderloin is such an easy piece of meat to cook and this sauce is a nice addition. It is especially good served over rice so that it can soak up the extra sauce that you drizzle over the pork.
Ingredients
1 pound pork tenderloin
1/4 cup molasses
1//8 cup dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
 
Directions
1. Packaging Instructions
2. Do not open pork tenderloin.  Set aside.
3. In a gallon-size freezer bag combine the molassed, mustard, vinegar, and salt.  Seal securely.  Set aside.

12. Bake for 20 minutes or until pork is cooked to desired doneness, basting occasionally with the reserved molasses mixture.  Use clean utensils each time you baste so you do not contaminate the sauce from the raw pork.
