tender sliced pork tenderloin in a balsamic vinegar cream sauce

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces pork tenderloin, 2 pieces (trimmed and pounded)
  • flour, to coat pork
  • salt and pepper
  • 13 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 14 cup knorr's demi-glace (prepared, mixed with warm water)
  • 14 cup heavy cream, mixture diluted with half-and-half
  • 20 pieces prosciutto, small pieces, maybe a slice cut up into little squares
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. in a small sautee pan add olive oil.
  2. salt and flour pork, pat off excess flour.
  3. turn on heat to medium, when oil is hot, add pork, give the pan a little shimmy so pork does not stick to the pan.
  4. brown sides and remove pork. Pour out the oil.
  5. add balsamic vinegar, demi glace, cream, prosciutto, and a pinch of salt to taste, but make sure you know what the taste is, and that is good. probably more salt than you think, but not too much, duh.
  6. cook on medium heat until it starts to thicken just before finished add the pork back in and turn off, after a minute or so flip the pork over. pork should be tender, but all the way cooked.
  7. now enjoy.

I really enjoyed this. I sliced the pork into medallions before browning, since the recipe description said "tender sliced pork tenderloin" and gave no post-cooking carving directions. I used a scant measure of the vinegar and added a generous slug of cream sherry. I had no demi glace, so I used "Better than Bouillon" beef base (a scant tablespoon) in about a quarter to a third cup of water. I let the vinegar, sherry, and base come to heat before adding the cream and half-and-half. I ended up adding more dairy to have a thinner sauce, as it reduced very nicely and quickly in my cast iron skillet. The sauce was so rich and creamy, it needed no finishing (I usually find myself adding a pat of butter for sheen and texture). Fantastic recipe.

This recipe is wonderful!!! I made it for a dinner party of 8 and every single person loved it! I did not use knorrs demi-glaze - instead I used a pre-packaged (non powdered)demi-glace. Very easy to make.
