What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pounds pork tenderloins
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. ​extra virgin olive oil (or enough to coat pan)
  • 6 to 8 ounces sliced or diced mushrooms
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • Glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup  maple syrup, dark
  • 2 large  cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Slice pork tenderloins crosswise into rounds about one inch thick. Lightly sprinkle both sides of the medallions with salt and pepper; press both sides into the flour.
  3. Put enough olive oil in a large nonstick skillet or sauté pan to coat the bottom of the pan; heat over medium heat. Add the pork medallions and brown for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the medallions to a plate.
  1. Add the mushrooms and green onions to the pan. Cook until mushrooms are just tender.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the glaze ingredients in a bowl; stir to blend thoroughly. 
  3. Put the pork tenderloin back in the skillet and pour glaze over all; stir to coat all pieces of pork.
  4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once. (If the skillet is not ovenproof, transfer everything to a baking pan.)
  5. Serve pork with glaze. Serves 4 to 6.
