Ingredients

    2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
    1/2 cup lower sodium chicken broth
    2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

Directions

1. Heat oven to 450F. Pat tenderloins dry with paper towels. Combine oil, salt, pepper, garlic and sage in a small bowl; rub paste over tenderloins and set them in a shallow roasting pan. Roast until done to taste, about 20 minutes for medium (an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loin will register 145 F). Transfer to cutting board and let stand while you prepare the sauce.

2. Set pan over medium-high heat on stovetop. Add broth; cook and stir, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan, until sauce has been reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat; add butter and swirl pan to melt. Slice tenderloin and serve with sauce.
