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.

  • Portion size 3 servings



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. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook mushrooms, garlic, seasoning and remaining salt and pepper for 5 minutes or until browned and liquid is evaporated. Stir in stock. Return pork to skillet.

Transfer skillet to 425°F (220°C) oven; cook for 15 minutes or until just a hint of pink remains inside pork. Let stand for 5 minutes; slice thinly. Serve with sauce and potatoes.
