  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup whole grain mustard

  • ¼ cup light brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, minced

  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Generously season tenderloin with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together mustard, brown sugar and thyme.

  3. Place a large sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil onto a baking sheet. Place onion slices in the center of the foil, in a single layer. Place pork over the onions and brush with 1/2 of the mustard mixture.

  4. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 130 degrees F.

  5. Remove from oven. Open packet carefully by cutting along top fold with a sharp knife, allowing steam to escape. When uncovered, brush with remaining mustard mixture. Leaving the packet open, broil for about 1 minute or until a nice crust forms on top. Remove from the oven and allow tenderloin to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
