Onion Pork Tenderloins Recipe

Onion Pork Tenderloins Recipe

This recipe came from my mom, and its the easiest "fancy" entree I've found. Sometimes I add sliced fresh mushrooms to the skillet with the pork. Fix frozen mashed potatoes and a bagged salad, and you can pull together an entire meal with little effort.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 to 1-1/4 pounds each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup cold water


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown tenderloins in oil on all sides. Sprinkle soup mix over the meat; add wine to the skillet. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°, adding water to the skillet if needed. Remove tenderloins and keep warm.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with tenderloins. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"very good and easy. I used both white cooking wine and chicken broth for the sauce. I also took the suggestion of using the fresh mushrooms since we had some that needed to be used. I will be using this one as our favorite stove top recipe!"

"I enjoyed this recipe, however I used wine instead of chicken broth and I think I would use chicken broth next time or half of each. I also added fresh sliced mushrooms to the sauce and that was a nice addition."

"SO simple but SO elegant! I use BOTH wine AND chicken broth instead of one or the other to make a super flavorful sauce. Other than that, it's good to go for family, company, or to take to someone who's in need of a meal. The sauce is good over potatoes or any vegetable you want to serve it with."

"This is such a good and easy dish to make. My husband is still talking about the wonderful gravy it had. Do not add any salt to the pork as there is plenty in the onion soup mix. This is a keeper."

"Added chopped onions while browning the tenderloins and then added a can of cream of mushroom soup instead of broth/wine. Makes an excellent gravy without having to thicken it. Be sure to use low sodium soup, otherwise it is too salty. Can serve with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice. Very easy."

"I would make double the amount of gravy. I used a sweet wine which added a nice fruity flavor to th gravy. It was to die for. I'm also going to try this with chicken breast and try it in the crock pot."

"We really enjoyed this!! It was very easy to make and tasted great. I did add a couple of sliced onions before simmering. The flavor was great! We're salt lovers so it wasn't too salty for us. If you don't like salt, then you should probably try a recipe that doesn't call for onion soup mix or try mixing up your own. Thanks so much for the recipe!!"
