Pork Tenderloin w/ Mustard Sauce

An easy dinner with a nice pan sauce. Doing this sous vide makes it almost impossible to overcook the pork. It will be nice and juicy, but also a little pink. If that scares you (it really shouldn’t) then you can crank up the sous vide temp, but i really wouldn’t go past 145.

One tenderloin will serve 2-3 people.
