Pork Tenderloin Diane

I picked up a pork tenderloin from the store and went in search of a quick and simple recipe online. I found this one at Allrecipes that looked perfect. I couldn’t believe how fast this was to prepare and how delicious it was. This is a dish worthy of company and so easy too! We all thought the pork was very tender and the sauce made it extra delicious. I served it with rice and a tossed salad for a healthy and delicious meal.

Remove the silverskin from the pork tenderloin (click this link for instructions). Cut the tenderloin into 1 inch thick medallions. Place the medallions on a cutting board and cover with a piece of wax paper then flatten each medallion slightly with the palm of your hand. Season both sides of the medallions with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the medallions to the HOT skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, and mustard to the pan along with half of the parsley. Cook, stirring with pan juices, for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Add the pork along with any juices back to the pan and coat both sides with the sauce. Place the pork on a serving platter with a side of the sauce. Sprinkle the pork with the remaining parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    I love pork tenderloin but don’t make it as often as I would like. This looks delicious and it sounds yummy with rice!

    This looks and sounds delicious!

    I haven’t made a pork tenderloin in years. It’s one of those foods where my older son says, “Mom, you used to make this all the time.” It’s going on my list of foods to make after our cleanse is over. I’ll make sure to invite our older son, too! :)

    I tend to forget about pork tenderloin medallions and usually cook it intact. This method and recipe make it so special occasion worthy. But then again, I think every day would be a special occasion at your table Pam!

    Steak Diane and steak Bearnaise are my favorites.
    Oh the sauce, I swear I always make extra and always order extra when dining out.
    Never used it on pork, but why not?
    Fabulous!
    Have a great weekend!

    Okay, this is creepy. I printed out that exact same recipe to make on or about the same day you made this. I had to make some substitutions but we loved it.
    I didn’t take pictures because it was the first meal I cooked after my surgery and was pushing it as it was.
    You and I were on the same wave length last week!

    I raced over here after seeing this recipe on Larry’s blog. Nice dish! I’ve cooked medallions of beef this way, breaded and loved the results. I can’t wait to try this one with that wonderful sauce. Nice to meet you and thanks for a great recipe.
