Serves 4 (serving size: 3 medallions and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

A high-flavored sauce of sage, cream, sherry vinegar, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar tops medallions of sauteed pork tenderloin. Serve Cider and Sage Pork for a casual dinner with friends or easy weeknight supper for the family.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Made to recipe, super-easy and very good.  Served with steamed brussels sprouts, mashed yams & homemade cranberry sauce.  Great autumn dinner.

Made this for dinner last nite & both my husband & I agreed it is a nice weeknite meal that can be made quickly and is tasty. We served this with smashed red potatoes & steamed broccoli. I made no changes to the recipe & surprise!!! there was enough sauce for the entire amount of pork (I have found I need to double the sauce a lot of time on CL recipes). I will surely make this again for dinner, didnt think there was enough pizazz for a meal for company.

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.

This is really delicious. I didn't have sherry vinegar so I used 2 teaspoons sherry cooking wine and 2 teaspoons white vinegar. The sauce is indeed a little runny, but still adds a ton of flavor to the pork. I served this with green beans like in the picture and some couscous. Definitely a keeper!!

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.

The sauce did not add much unless thick on the meat. It may have needed more sage, and most of the flavor came from the mustard.
