Orange, Mustard, and Sage Roasted Pork Tenderloin

A pork tenderloin that has been coated in a honey, mustard, orange, and garlic glaze, pressed with fresh sage, and roasted on a bed of fresh orange slices.  Tangy, sweet, and slightly spicy this is one of the easiest roasts I have ever made.  If you are a novice roaster or just don’t feel like…
