Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 2 lb/1 kg total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Method

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sear pork all over, about 6 minutes.

Transfer to 400°F (200°C) oven; roast until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 15 minutes. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile, in same skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute.

Add cider and bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Stir in chicken broth, cream and mustard; boil until reduced to 1 cup (250 mL), about 5 minutes.

Mix cornstarch with 2 tsp (10 mL) water and stir into sauce along with thyme and parsley; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Serve with pork.
