Sweet isn't just for breakfast cereals and desserts. Sweet can meld with savory in the most amazing ways, including this pork tenderloin with demi sauce. The sauce mixes classic peppy and sharp flavors like mustard and vinegar, balanced by brown sugar, and softened with rich butter. Add a sweet apple and fresh Brussels, and you have a hash fit for a King. (Or Queen, whatever works for you!) Tip: if you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.
