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.

  • 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.

Having never made a pork tenderloin before this was the best recipe ever. Very easy to make and came out so tender. Both my husband and 3 year old son asked for more. And the gravy is so yummy. Great recipe!!!!!

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.

This was sooooo good! My family LOVED the flavor, and the meat was so tender. It was definitely quick and easy to make and so tasty! I served it with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and corn bread. A wonderful meal!
