Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    For the pork:

    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    1 TBSP minced garlic
    1 TBSP fresh rosemary, chopped
    1 TBSP fresh thyme, chopped
    1 tsp fresh sage, chopped
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    2 1/2 lb. pork tenderloin (this was two separate pieces for me, each weighing about 1 1/4 pound. I cooked them both but served only one and saved the other for another meal)

    Combine all marinade ingredients in a sealable gallon baggie. Add tenderloins. Press air out of baggie and seal. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

    For the roasted vegetables:

    2-3 medium red skinned potatoes, scrubbed, diced into 1/2" cubes
    1/2 pound green beans, ends trimmed
    4 ounces button mushrooms, quartered

    other ingredients:

    1/4 cup canola oil
    salt and pepper
    1 heaping TBSP flour
    1 cup chicken broth

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Place cubed potatoes in microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Set aside.

    Remove pork tenderloins from marinade and discard marinade. Season tenderloins with salt and pepper. In a LARGE (12 inch) oven-proof skillet, heat 1/4 cup canola oil. When oil is hot, add the tenderloins and sear on all sides, about 1-2 minutes per side. Place skillet in oven and finish cooking tenderloins, about 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees. Remove pan from oven (BE CAREFUL, the handle will be screaming hot) Remove tenderloins to cutting board and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

    Increase oven heat to 450 degrees.

    Place potatoes, green beans and mushrooms in same skillet. Toss to coat in the oil remaining in the skillet and season well with salt and pepper. Return the skillet to the oven and let vegetables roast for and additional 15-20 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and transfer veggies to a serving platter.

    Add the flour to the skillet and cook the flour over medium heat for a few minutes. Add chicken broth and whisk until smooth, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the skillet.

    Slice tenderloins into 1 1/2 inch slices and add to serving platter. Pour pan gravy over meat and serve.

Directions

Combine all marinade ingredients in a sealable gallon baggie. Add tenderloins. Press air out of baggie and seal. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.


Preheat oven to broil.

Place cubed potatoes in microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Arrange potatoes, string beans or other vegetables in a large casserole dish, pouring olive oil, rosemary and salt on top. Place in oven on broil for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile...

Remove pork tenderloins from marinade and discard marinade. Season tenderloins with salt and pepper. In a LARGE (12 inch) oven-proof skillet (I use cast iron), heat 1/4 cup canola oil. When oil is hot, add the tenderloins and sear on all sides, about 5 minutes per side. Place the cast iron skillet in the oven and finish cooking tenderloins lowering temperature to 400 deg, about 20-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees. Remove the potatoes when browned. Check meat and remove pan from oven when fully cooked. Remove tenderloins to cutting board and transfer to casserole with potatoes.

Add the flour and some water to the empty skillet and cook the flour over medium heat for a few minutes. Add beef broth and a dash of balsamic vinegar and whisk until smooth, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the skillet.

Slice tenderloins into 1 1/2 inch slices and add to serving platter. Pour pan gravy over meat and serve.
