Parmesan Pork Tenderloin Recipe

"Being of Danish descent, I'm fond of pork dishes. This is one of my own creations," shares John Hansen of Marstons Mills, Massachusetts. "We've enjoyed this on many occasions-it can be made ahead when you're expecting company."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound)
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons port wine or additional beef broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon each dried basil, thyme and rosemary, crushed
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water


  • 1. Cut pork into 1/2-in. slices; flatten to 1/8-in. thickness. Coat with Parmesan cheese; set aside.
  • 2. In a large skillet, saute the onion, mushrooms and garlic in 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil until tender; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, cook pork in remaining butter and oil in batches over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. Add broth to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Stir in wine or additional broth and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork and onion mixture. Yield: 2 servings.

"I loved this dish. I didn't have grated parmesan cheese but the sprinkle kind worked just fine. I also used black chinese mushrooms and they were delicious. I wished I had made more of the sauce though so if you like sauce atleast double that."
