1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar

1 large pork tenderloin (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Kosher salt

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Creole or whole-grain mustard

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons drained horseradish

1 12-ounce package broccoli slaw mix

2 small bell peppers (1 red, 1 orange), thinly sliced

3 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix 1 tablespoon each Cajun seasoning and brown sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle the pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and rub with the sugar-spice mixture. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the pork and sear until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145 degrees F, about 18 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, make the slaw: Whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, horseradish and the remaining 2 teaspoons each Cajun seasoning and brown sugar in a small bowl. Toss the slaw mix, bell peppers and scallions in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise dressing and toss to coat. Slice the pork and divide among plates. Drizzle with any juices from the skillet. Serve with the slaw.
