The beauty of this meal is that it all cooks at once! Get the pork seared and veggies chopped, then it all goes in the oven. The pork will be cooked before the veggies and that gives you just the right amount of time to turn those rich pan juices into a simple sauce. And this sauce is rich; which our family loved. But you can easily tone it down by diluting with a bit of water. Then thicken to your liking and serve. Simple and delicious! The perfect combination.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Pan Sauce

SERVINGS : 4 PEOPLE COOK TIME : MINUTES PREP TIME : MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Season tenderloin with pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Heat olive oil in a cast iron pan (or other oven-proof pan) over medium high heat until it begins to shimmer.
  4. Add tenderloin to pan and sear on all sides until it is nice and brown.
  5. Pour beef broth, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce into the pan with the tenderloin. Stir to combine.
  6. Place the pan to the oven (If you don't have an oven-proof pan, transfer the tenderloin and liquids to a baking dish.)
  7. Roast tenderloin for 20 minutes, flip to baste, and roast another 15-20 minutes. Depending on the thickness, you may need to continue cooking another 10 minutes or until the internal temperature is between 150 and 160.
  8. Place the pan back on the stove-top. Transfer the pork to a chopping block and let it rest while you prepare the pan sauce.
  9. Carefully ladle about 1/4 cup of the pan dippings into a small bowl. Add cornstarch and mix to combine. Pour the cornstarch combination back into the pan, and simmer over medium high heat until it has thickened. If you prefer a thicker sauce, ladle another 1/4 cup and repeat the process.
  10. Slice tenderloin and drizzle with pan sauce.

NOTES

KID NOTE: Serve the sauce on the side for ‘dipping’.

VEGETARIAN TIP: Adjust the pork recipe to transform it into a seared eggplant dish. Pan sear eggplant slices until tender. Transfer to a plate and add remaining ingredients to the pan (except the cornstarch). Bring to a simmer and follow directions to thicken with cornstarch.

GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Use tamari in place of soy sauce and make sure your Worcestershire sauce is gluten free.

    What can I substitute for the pork tenderloin?

  2. stephchen says:

    Is half a cup of Worcestshire sauce correct? That seems like a lot. Thanks!

  3. jrojas2000 says:

    Do you cover the tenderloin when you put it in the oven?

  4. stephchen says:

    My whole family loved this meal, even the sauce. I made with bone-in chicken breasts instead of pork, but that was the only change I made. Delicious!

  5. Yoyorogi says:

    Pork was incredibly tender. I doubled both the pork and vegetables. Had enough leftovers to make a stirfry the next night, with nearly zero prep!
