4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/4 cup shallot mixture)

This dish is reminiscent of bistro-style steak with shallot sauce. Serve with rice, egg noodles, or roasted potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan, and keep warm.

Step 2

Add remaining 4 teaspoons oil to pan; reduce heat to medium. Add shallots to pan; cook 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup water and vinegar; simmer 6 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spoon shallot mixture over pork. Serve immediately.

Good and super easy. I wasn't blown away by any means, but it worked and the leftovers were good too.

Love this dish! Great favors. Just be careful not to over cook your pork. Pairs nice with quinoa.

These weren't anywhere near as good as I expected. Too many shallots, and I didn't think the vinegar enhanced the dish. We all scraped off the shallots and just ate the pork. Won't make this again.

The pork was good, but it needed more of the sauce; so next time I'll double the sauce. Also I'd forgot to buy shallots when I did my grocery shopping, so use onions.

Delicious. Was a huge hit for fathers day. I cooked the pork and removed it from the pan. I made the sauce and put the pork back in to coat. Only had four shallots. But doubled everything else. It was perfect.

My whole family enjoyed this recipe. My children called the shallots worms, but it got them to eat them. The sweet taste of the carmelized shallots and balsamic is very kid-friendly. We served it with roasted baby red potatoes and steamed asparagus. I am adding it to my cookbook now.

I had a bulk bag of shallots from a warehouse store. This recipe was just the ticket to using some of them. Delicious, I will be adding this to my recipe repertoire. Served with rice pilaf and roasted asparagus. An easy meal to be made on a work day evening.
