Tenderloin with Herb Sauce

Tender pork is treated to a rich and creamy sauce with a slight kick, thanks to red pepper flakes. This hearty dish is very simple to prepare and always a dinnertime winner. —Monica Shipley, Tulare, California

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • Cut each tenderloin into 12 slices; sprinkle with salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium heat; brown pork in batches, 3-4 minutes per side. Return all pork to pan.
  • Mix remaining ingredients; pour over pork. Cook, uncovered, over low heat until sauce is thickened and a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Editor's Note
Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.
