Ingredients

2 pounds pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon thyme
*
½ teaspoon salt
up to one teaspoon
¼ teaspoon black pepper
up to 1/2 teaspoon
*
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup white wine
or chicken stock
*
1 cup light cream (half&half)
with 1 tsp. corn starch added
2 tablespoons parsley leaves
fresh, chopped (optional)

Directions

Pat the pork tenderloin dry.

Combine mustard, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub into pork.

Heat the oil in a roasting pan or skillet that can be used on direct heat and moved to the oven.

Brown the pork on all sides.

Add white wine to the pan and roast in preheated 350℉ (180℃) oven 45 to 50 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 150 degrees℉ (65℃).

Remove the pork from the pan, cover with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes.

Add the cream to juices remaining in the pan and scrape up any bits of meat stuck to the bottom of the pan into the sauce.

Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer gently until slightly thickened to your desired consistency.

Adjust seasoning if necessary.

In the meantime, slice the pork and return it to the sauce.

Heat gently before serving.

Sprinkle with parsley as a garnish if desired. The sauce is delicious served with steamed or roasted potatoes and carrots on the side.

How to cook pork tenderloin?

Searing then finishing the pork in the oven keeps the pork tenderloin juicy. Allow the pork to rest for at least 10 minutes. This allows the juices to be re-absorbed evenly throughout the pork.

What temperature to cook pork tenderloin?

After searing, finish the pork in a 350℉ (180℃) oven. For maximum juiciness use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of the pork.

The USDA revised recommendations state that the minimum internal temperature for pork is "145 °F (62.8 °C) and allow to rest for at least 3 minutes".

Stop overcooking pork! :)

Easy and wow, the sauce is divine and matches the juicy pork perfect. I always make this with some veggies on the side to use up the tasty sauce.

Definitely pull out when thermometer registers 145. Tent lightly with foil. The temperature will rise at least 5 degrees on its own. This period is also necessary to reabsorb juices Great recipe.
