Tenderloin with Herb Sauce Recipe

Tender meat is treated to a rich and creamy sauce with a slight red-pepper kick. “This is very simple to prepare and always tasty,” confirms Monica Shipley from Tulare, California.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • 1. Cut each tenderloin into 12 slices; sprinkle with salt. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown pork in butter in batches over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Return all pork to the skillet.
  • 2. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over pork. Cook and stir over low heat for 2-3 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.
