Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 2 slices pork

Tender, thin slices of pork tenderloin with a robust sauce.

Name: Amount:
lb pork tenderloin, cut into 8 slices, pounded to 1/8-inch thickness 1
salt-free grilling seasoning blend 1 tsp
canola oil, divided 3 tsp
thinly sliced onions 1 cup
medium garlic cloves, minced 2
Dijon mustard 0.75 tsp
white whole-wheat flour 2 tsp
water 0.50 cup
low-sodium beef bouillon granules 2 tsp

Sprinkle both sides of the pork with seasoning blend.


Heat 1 tsp canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Tilt skillet to coat bottom. Add half of pork slices and cook 2 minutes; then turn and cook 1 minute or until juices run clear. Set aside on a plate. Repeat with 1 teaspoon canola oil and remaining pork and place on the plate.


Heat remaining 1 tsp canola oil, tilt skillet, and add onions. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes or until onions are translucent. Stir in garlic. Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining ingredients until well blended.


Return to heat and add pork and any accumulated juices. Turn pieces over several times to coat with onion mixture, reduce to medium-low heat, cover tightly, and simmer 10 minutes or until pork is very tender and juices run clear.
