  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine 1 tablespoon of the mustard with the salt and pepper in a small bowl; rub all over pork. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer the pan to the oven or transfer pork to roasting pan, and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145&;F and juices run clear, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Transfer pork to cutting board, let rest for 3 minutes. Place skillet over medium heat, and vinegar and boil, scraping up any bits from pan with a wooden spoon, about 30 seconds. Whisk in maple syrup and remaining 3 tablespoons mustard; bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Serve sliced pork with sauce.
