Pork tenderloin is nicely seasoned and cooked with a wonderful creamy mustard sauce in this easy recipe. The pork tenderloin is sliced about 3/4 inch thick but can be pressed or gently pounded to make the medallions thinner for quicker cooking.
- 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds total)
- 3 tablespoons butter (divided)1 medium shallot (finely chopped)
- 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons white wine or apple juice
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard or good quality gourmet mustard
- 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Trim the pork of excess fat and remove the silver skin. Cut into 3/4-inch slices. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until mushrooms are tender. Remove the mushrooms to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the skillet along with the olive oil.
- Cook the pork medallions for about 10 minutes, turning to brown both sides, or until cooked through. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and remove to a warm plate; keep warm.
- Add wine or apple juice to the skillet. Stir in the cream and mustard; bring to a boil. Boil, stirring, for about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the cream mixture and cook for 1 minute longer.
- Arrange pork medallions on a serving platter and spoon mushroom sauce over all. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, if desired.
- Serve with noodles, rice, or potatoes, along with a tossed salad or steamed vegetables.
