Serves 4 (serving size: about 3 ounces pork and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Supper doesn't get any simpler than one pan and five ingredients. To easily round out the plate for this elegant entrée, serve with a spinach salad and roasted potatoes or a bed of wild rice, and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Gently flatten pork slices using the palm of your hand. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Add mustard and butter to pan, stirring until butter melts. Add stock and flour to pan, stirring with a whisk. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until mixture thickens, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Serve sauce over pork.

Easy but Elegant Enough for Company

Made this exactly as called for and it turned out great.  Warning:  have all your side dishes ready to go before you add the mustard and butter to the pan.  The sauce thickens quickly; I had to add a little more stock to thin it out.  Didn't hurt the dish, just saying. . . .

Definitely a hit with the family

I got a new cast iron skillet for Christmas and wanted to try it out.  This was a good choice as I got a nice sear on the pork yet it was still very tender.  The sauce thickened up quickly, so be ready to go with your sides at the end.  Tonight was garlic-mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. 

Good, easy recipe

This recipe was very basic and simple, but I really enjoyed the creamy, grainy mustard sauce on the pork tenderloin. I had to add an extra tsp of flour to get my sauce a bit thicker, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I will definitely make this again!
