Adapted from Simply Suppers by Jennifer Chandler

For the Pork Tenderloin:
1 pork tenderloin (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup apricot preserves
2 dozen yeast rolls

For the Apricot Mustard:
3/4 cup apricot preserves
2 tablespoons French’s Honey Dijon Mustard

To prepare the Pork Tenderloin: Preheat the oven to 395 degrees.

Rinse the pork tenderloin and pat it dry with paper towels. Generously season with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron or oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil until a few droplets of water sizzle when carefully sprinkled in the skillet. Sear the tenderloin until well-browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Brush 3/4 cup of apricot preserves over the top and place the tenderloin in the oven to finish cooking, about 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the tenderloin to a cutting board with a well. Cover loosely with foil and let the pork rest about 5 minutes before thinly slicing.

To make the Apricot Mustard: In a small bowl whisk together the apricot preserves and Honey Dijon mustard until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

To assemble: Place a slice of pork tenderloin garnished with a spoonful of Apricot Mustard on each roll.

Serves 10 to 12.

Cooking Tip: If you are unsure if the pork (or any other meat) is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer. Pork is safe to eat when it is cooked to an internal temperature of 155 to 160 degrees.
