Randy Mayor; Jan Gautro
Yield

4 servings (serving size: 3 pork slices, about 3 tablespoons sauce, and about 1/2 cup noodles)

Serve quick-cooking pork tenderloin in a zesty Dijon mustard sauce over egg noodles for dinner tonight. The noodles soak up the extra sauce so you don't lose any flavor. Pair with steamed asparagus or broccoli.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked medium egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 12 (1-inch-thick) slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
