Ingredients for Grilling Pork Tenderloin

We recommend fresh herbs when making this marinade for grilled pork tenderloin. But if all you have is dried, cut the amount by 1/2 and use dried herbs in place of the fresh ones.

The pork tenderloin sauce also calls for dijon mustard, which gives it a wonderful flavor and also helps the herbs stick to the meat. However you can use your favorite mustard in its place, or omit it all together if you dislike mustard.
