    Pork Au Poivre


    • 1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, coarsely ground or crushed
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1/2 cup dry red wine
    • salt, to taste


    Step 1
    Slice tenderloin lengthwise, being careful not to cut through to other side. Split meat into one large, flat piece.
    Step 2
    Spread mustard over both sides of the meat and rub in pepper, pressing gently so it adheres well. Cut meat crosswise into 4 even portions.
    Step 3
    In large skillet, heat oil over medium flame. Put tenderloin in the pan and cook for about 10 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 155°F, turning once.
    Step 4
    Transfer meat to a plate and tent with foil to keep it warm. Add chicken broth and wine to pan and cook over medium-high heat, scraping up any bits that have stuck to the pan. Continue to cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup.
    Step 5
    Pour sauce over meat, season with salt, and serve.
