Tested till perfect Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce

Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce

Challenge: My husband, James, and I have to squeeze dinner between shifts — literally. James is an electronics engineering technician who works nights, so we're tight for time when I get home. It's important that we share a meal together. Solution: Pork tenderloins weigh about 12 oz (375 g), which is the ideal amount for three servings — two at suppertime and leftovers for James's lunch. James loves sauce, and here it serves to keep the meat moist when reheated in the office microwave.

Pierce potatoes all over with fork. Place in microwaveable dish. Pour in 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; cover and microwave at High for 6 minutes or until tender. Set aside.

Sprinkle pork with half each of the salt and pepper. In ovenproof skillet, heat oil over high heat; brown pork on all sides. Transfer to plate.
