Recipe by breezermom

Although the recipe calls for port, you can use any relatively sweet red wine in this recipe. I like to use this when my grocery store puts pork tenderloin "buy one get one free"!

This is a really delicious and easy to make dish. I made it just as directed and served it with mashed potatoes and spinach. Made for Photo Tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you have one large tenderloin, cut it into 16 medallions. If you have 2 small tenderloins, cut each one into 8 slices. Sprinkle with cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  2. Saute pork slices in oil in a large skillet for 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer pork to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. Drain the fat from the skillet; add onion and garlic, and saute 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned -- be careful not to burn it.
  4. Add wine, water, and vinegar; stir well. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer uncovered, until the liquid is reduced to 1/3 cup.
  5. Add the butter, stirring until the butter melts. Spoon sauce over the pork; sprinkle with cilantro.
