How to Make It
Cut pork crosswise into 12 pieces. Sprinkle both sides of pork evenly with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pork from pan; keep warm.
Add remaining oil, shallots, and chopped sage; cook 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Whisk broth, cider, mustard, and cornstarch. Add mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in cream. Serve with pork. Garnish with sage, if desired.

Excellent. I didn't have sage, so used tarragon and it was delicious. Plenty of sauce. We had some polenta cakes along side, but next time I'd make rice to soak up the sauce. I would definitely serve this for guests and it is very easy to prepare.
This was very good - my husband and I both enjoyed it and it is something I will make again. I had unfilted apple juice left over from Chicken with Brussels Sprouts & Mustard Sauce and Cider Scalloped Potatoes, and I ran across this recipe. I used white wine vinegar, and eyeballed the salt and pepper. Delicious, served with Mashed Potatoes and steamed green beans. Still looking to use the remaining apple juice, so moving on the the spice cake with apple glaze and maybe roasted brussel sprouts and apples paired with my next CL meal.
This was really good and so simple for a weeknight meal.
Note to Nichelleley and anyone else that uses "cooking wines" -- DON'T --they are full of salt and aren't really wine. They often have an off flavor that could ruin your dish.
