Onion Pork Tenderloins

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.
  • Makes
    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


  • 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 thermometer reads 160°, adding water to the skillet if needed. Remove tenderloins and keep warm.
  • 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.

    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.
