Pork with Mustard Sauce

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

    4 servings


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin

  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Cut tenderloin into 8 pieces. Slice each piece again, but do not cut all the way through; open and flatten each piece, pounding slightly with meat mallet.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    This is a great recipe. I don't butterfly the meat, but just cut medallions. It is wonderful. I also make extra sauce. My family loves it on egg noodles mashed potatoes or rice.

    This is one of our favorite pork chop recipes. They are very tender. The dijon gives it a nice flavor.

    I've made these for years. The entire family looks forward to it. I've used chops more times than not. So happy the recipe is still here!!

    Very easy to make, and so flavorful. I was out of tarragon, so I used sage instead, and loved it! My kids are not mustard lovers, which made this recipe all the much more appealing as you can serve the sauce on the side and satisfy everyone!

    The flavor in this sauce is wonderful! I've made it with pork chops but the tenderloin is obviously better. Delicious!
