Honey mustard Pork Tenderloin and Carrots

Bake thawed(I would not recommend baking the loin frozen) Tenderloin in oven for 40-50 minutes at 350 uncovered. Inner Temp of Loin should reach 145. It can be pink in the middle as long as it has reached the 145 temp. I did mine in a shallow glass dish, and included the juices from baggie. Let stand for five minutes, slice and serve:)

Cook thawed carrots, butter, and brown sugar at med-high in a sauce pan. This will take 15 minutes or so. They will need to be turned so the brown sugar does not burn. We sprinkle some sea salt on them as they are cooking. Not much, just some:)

Jennie, the only dairy is the butter in the carrot bag. There is not any dairy in the marinade:)
