  6. Let meat rest 10 to 15 minutes then slice into 12 portions.
  7. To make sauce, heat remaining 1/4 cup mustard, horseradish and brown sugar in a small pan over medium heat.

  9. Reduce heat to low and stir in sour cream. Remove from heat and serve over tenderloin.

Helpful hints

  • Make the mustard sauce while the meat is resting.
  • If meat is cut before resting, juices will be lost and meat is not as moist.
  • Begin checking meat temperature after 25 to 30 minutes. Cooking time varies with thickness of the meat.
  • Freeze leftover portions for a quick meal later.
