Justin & Amanda Learn To Cook: Meal 2 – Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin

Week two is in the books.

This week Amanda and I decided to tackle pork tenderloin. It’s not my favorite meat traditionally, but I actually really liked this meal. Here are the ingredients, followed by the directions.


  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Olive oil 
  • Cauliflower
  • Chives
  • Parsley 
  • Chickpeas
  • Pork tenderloin
  • Honey 
  • Dijon mustard
  • Paprika 


First, we seasoned the pork with salt, pepper, and paprika. Then we seared it in olive oil for a couple of minutes on each side, coated it in a mixture of honey and Dijon, and put it in the oven for 15 minutes. Pretty simple, and it tastes great.

For sides, we made a cauliflower mash (and some asparagus, though that wasn’t part of the recipe so I didn’t add it in the ingredients).

We boiled 3 cups of cauliflower, a can of chickpeas, and 2 cloves of garlic for 10 minutes, mashed it up, then added the fresh herbs and 1/4 cup of olive oil. You are supposed to use a food processor to blend it all together, but we didn’t have one and it actually worked out great.

Here’s the final product:

I actually liked this meal better than last weeks. Especially the cauliflower mash.
