I have been cooking a lot lately, so I'm a little bit behind on my posting. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up this week!
I made this meal for dinner one night last week, and my husband and I were both shocked by how absolutely delicious it was. This was seriously a restaurant quality meal, and I was surprised to find it in a cookbook geared for quick family suppers; it could have been in the pages of Gourmet and been right at home! The flavors worked so well together, and don't even get me started on that incredible sauce! I served this with broccoli, but next time (oh, and there will definitely be a next time!) I'll serve it with mashed potatoes, because mashed potatoes + the sauce on this pork would surely = HEAVEN. This is a meal you could entertain with very, very easily, and it took absolutely no time and very little effort to put together. I think chopping everything actually took longer than cooking everything! The prosciutto, the sun-dried tomatoes, the sage, the cream...it was the perfect marriage of flavors. It's seriously making my mouth water just thinking about it.
Pork Tenderloin with Prosciutto
Source: Betty Crocker One-Dish Family Favorites (pages 116-117)
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped imported prosciutto
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup) (I used red onion)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Cut pork diagonally across grain into 1/2 inch slices. Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook prosciutto, sage, parsley, tomatoes and onion in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender.
2. Add pork to skillet. Cook about 10 minutes, turning pork occasionally, until pork is light brown. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pork is no longer pink in center and sauce is thickened.
