Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Slice the pork lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, the other side. Open halves, laying pork flat. Sprinkle each side of pork with 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. Heat oil a large ovenproof skillet coated with cooking spray. Add pork; cook for 2 minutes on each side. Place the pan in oven, and bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink). Remove pork from pan; keep warm.
  3. Add broth and remaining ingredients to pan; stir well with a whisk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (for about 3 minutes).
