Pork with Mustard Sauce Recipe

Pork with Mustard Sauce Recipe

Back when I was a girl, I couldn't wait until I was grown up and could start cooking for my own family! Now that I am, I really enjoy using pork. The tender meat and the rich mustard sauce in this recipe are delectable together. -Irma Pomeroy, Enfield, Connecticut

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Hot cooked noodles, optional

Directions

  • 1. Cut tenderloin into eight pieces. Slice each piece again, but do not cut all of the way through; open and flatten each piece, pounding slightly with meat mallet.
  • 2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the pork in butter until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes on each side. Remove to a serving dish and keep warm; discard drippings.
  • 3. In the same skillet, cook broth and tarragon over high heat until reduced by half. Reduce heat; stir in cream and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon over pork. Serve with noodles if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
