Spicy Dijon Pork Tenderloin (Whole30 & Paleo)

I love pork tenderloin but this Spicy Dijon Pork Tenderloin recipe has to be my favorite. Pork tenderloin can be hard to cook without drying the meat out, so the key is searing the tenderloin to lock in the juices before putting it in the oven. Adding the sauce on the meat when it is cooking definitely helps with maintaining the moisture and the flavor of the pork. And this spicy sauce is different than any other pork tenderloin recipes I have tried and it really is adds a great kick to the meat. It is so good, you will want to make it every week!

For the hot sauce, Sriracha is great with this recipe. But if you are doing the Whole30 or trying to avoid added sugar, try using Frank’s RedHot Original instead.
