    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Season pork tenderloin to taste with pepper.
    2. Place nuts in blender or food processor container. Cover and blend or process with on/off turns just until crumbly, but not paste-like. Transfer mixture to an 18-inch-long piece of waxed paper. Stir in Parmesan cheese.
    3. Stir together egg and mustard in pie plate. Dip pork tenderloin in egg mixture; coat pork in nut mixture using waxed paper to firmly press nut mixture on pork.
    4. Heat oil in large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork tenderloin and cook for 5 minutes or until surface is brown, turning tenderloin over halfway during cooking. (Tenderloin will not be completely cooked.) Roast pork tenderloin in ovenproof skillet in heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature is 145 degrees F. Transfer tenderloin to cutting board. Loosely cover with foil; let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
