Preheat oven to 350°F.

Trim tenderloin of any skin with a paring knife. Pat pork dry with paper towels. Coat pork with herbs, salt, and pepper.

In a preheated skillet, sear pork until browned on all sides. Transfer to a baking dish or roaster and cook, covered, in 350°F oven, until pork registers 165 degrees, approximately 30 – 45 minutes.

When pork is thoroughly cooked, brush with Maple Glaze and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Cool and slice pork. May be cooked a day ahead and reheated gently for serving the next day.

Serving Suggestions: Serve as a main course with a generous dollop of Handley Cellars Pinot Noir Onion Jam on the side, or serve as an appetizer on a crostini between a smear of Mendocino Mustard (or your favorite spicy mustard of choice will do) and a taste of Onion Jam topped with a sprig of cilantro, if desired.
