Parmesan Pork Tenderloin
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 25 min.
- 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound)
- 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 small sweet onion, sliced and separated into rings
- 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 teaspoons butter, divided
- 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
- 2 tablespoons port wine or additional beef broth
- 1/8 teaspoon salt, optional
- 1/8 teaspoon each dried basil, thyme and rosemary, crushed
- Dash pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water
- Cut pork into 1/2-in. slices; flatten to 1/8-in. thickness. Coat with Parmesan cheese; set aside.
- In a large skillet, saute the onion, mushrooms and garlic in 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil until tender; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, cook pork in remaining 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil in batches over medium heat until juices run clear, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm.
- Add broth to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Stir in wine or additional broth; add seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with the pork and the onion mixture.

I really enjoyed the herbal blend added to the broth. I used fresh instead of dried. The pork was moist and the sauce was very good.

One of the best new recipes I've tried in a while. No leftovers since it was that good. Definitely going to double that yummy sauce like others said next time. Very unique, very easy, very quick, and very tasty. Felt like we were eating at a fancy restaurant!

I have been making a similar recipe for years using thin chicken breast cutlets instead of pork. This pork tenderloin recipe is top notch! It is actually a pork medallion meal fit for company or an easy week night meal. I used chicken broth because I had it on hand. I served it with fettuccine noodles and crusty bread. Cranberry sauce and steamed broccoli were perfect sides and made a colorful and tasty plate. Highly recommend!! Volunteer Field Editor

Amazing dish, we absolutely loved it! The only change I made was doubling the sauce as recommended in the reviews. A definite keeper!

Excellent recipe. Easy to prepare. Pork was nice and tasty. The sautéed veggies were a perfect topping. I doubled up on the sauce. I also used thin cut loin chops. Add a side and you’ve created an amazing dinner. VFE. This is a must try.
