I made this for my husband and I and it was better than it sounded - SO good!! I made the full recipe for the 2 of us but had a smaller tenderloin (about 12-ounces) that we didn't finish. I did add about 1/2 cup sliced onions to the sauce and it was a nice addition. I served it with Roasted Parsnips, Tomatoes, Scallions and baby red potatoes for a great Friday night dinner.
Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce
Serve this pork recipe with stone-ground yellow grits to soak up the tangy, creamy sauce that's made with creme fraiche and Dijon mustard.

- 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 (8-ounce) package button mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1. Place a small roasting pan in oven. Preheat oven to 425°.
- 2. Sprinkle pork evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to preheated pan, and swirl to coat. Add pork to pan. Roast at 425° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of pork registers 145°, turning after 10 minutes. Remove pork from pan, and let stand for 10 minutes.
- 3. Place roasting pan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in vinegar, and bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 1 minute or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and broth; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced to 1/3 cup (about 7 minutes). Remove from heat, and stir in crème fraîche and mustard. Cut pork crosswise into slices. Place 3 ounces pork on each of 4 plates, and top each serving with about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce. Garnish with parsley.
Wine Match: Look to California for a wallet-friendly wine to pair with this recipe. Highlight the dish's meaty pork tenderloin and creamy, earthy mushrooms with a light, fruity red like The Naked Grape's Pinot Noir ($9). --Gretchen Roberts
