Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream
    1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    Salt
    1 1/2 pounds pork loin
    1 large garlic clove, thinly sliced
    1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a small bowl, stir together mustard, sour cream, ginger, thyme, and a pinch of salt; set aside.

Make several 1/4-inch slits in pork loin. Slip garlic into slits. Brush loin with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add pork loin and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat.

Spread mustard mixture over pork, then transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until a meat thermometer inserted into center of pork registers 150 degrees, about 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the pork to a cutting board; loosely cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
