This is a recipe I received from a caterer in town. She served this unique dish at an event and everyone really enjoyed it. It is pork tenderloin sliced thin and broiled for 3-5 minutes on each side. The pork slices are topped with a cream cheese based sauce that is really a delicious twist. I have made this at home several times. The sesame seeds in the recipe are optional. I have had the dish with and without them and it is great either way.
- 1 lb pork tenderloin
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted, divided
- 1 -2 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄3 cup milk
- 3 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- 1 tablespoon minced chives
- Cut pork into 1 inch slices and flatten to 1/2 thickness.
- Place sliced pork on a greased/oiled baking sheet. Brush oil over top of sliced pork. Sprinkle sliced pork with 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional).
- Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 3-5 minutes; turn and sprinkle remaining sesame seeds (optional). Broil 3-5 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear.
- Meanwhile, in a saucepan, saute garlic in butter for 1 minute. Stir in milk and cream cheese. Reduce heat; cook and stir until blended and smooth. Stir in chives. Serve over pork.
- Great accompanied with buttered noodles or roasted potatoes.
This was an uncomplicated and tastey dish. I did, however, substitute cream for the milk and cream cheese. I'm sure this had a profound effect on the taste ... and that it would only taste better with the cream cheese. Thanks for a simple, classy recipe! (You'll see in my pic, I put the sauce on the egg noodles -- yum!)
