You can prepare the Mustard Sauce a day or so ahead of time to let the flavor really develop.  This Mustard SAuce is great on pork tenderloin or prime rib.  If you want to tone down the flavor, just use less dry mustard.  I love the flavor so I make the sauce exactly as I have it here.  Enjoy!

Mustard Sauce for Meat

IMG_1264 Resized

This sauce improves in flavor after being refrigerated a day or so — this makes it a perfect make-ahead accompaniment for roasted or grilled pork or beef.  I’ve featured this sauce with my Bourbon Pork Tenderloin, but it would be equally good with prime rib or grilled rib eyes or even grilled filet mignons.  Any grilled pork would also work with this.

The flavor is pretty intense, so if you want to tone it down a bit, just use less of the dry mustard.  I think the intensity of the flavor is perfect, so I make the recipe exactly as I have given it here.
