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, heat butter over medium heat; brown pork in batches, 3-4 minutes per side. Return all pork to pan.
  • 2. 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. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.

"I LOVE this recipe. I make it often. Yes, it is very fast and easy to make. I omit the salt the recipe calls for because it is salty enough with the other ingredients. I cooked Apricot-Glazed Green Beans (from this website) as a side dish tonight. Excellent combo."

"This was a delicious fast meal. It only takes minutes to cook. I used almond milk instead of half and half but I forgot the red pepper flakes...still delicious. We just returned from the South of France where we bought herbs de Provence so this gave me a chance to use these delicious herbs. Would definitely make again...but would omit the salt...with the soy sauce and the beef boullion it was a bit salty."

"Yum, we really enjoyed this recipe. I did modify a little. I replaced the half and half cream with fat free evaporated milk. I also cooked the pork in 2 teaspoons butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. I think that this would make a great dinner party dish."

"I used chops as well. Adults enjoyed it, kids didn't. Recipe doesn't suggest to drain drippings from pan after cooking pork but that is definitely something I would do next time."
