Pork Tenderloin With A Black Currant Cabernet ReductionServes 4 as an entree.
Level of difficuly: easy
8 3oz Medallions of Pork Tenderloin
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
1/4 Cup Beef Stock
1/4 Cup Cabernet Sauvignon
2 Tbsp Black Currants
2 Tbsp Black Currant Jam
1 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Chopped Chives
Preheat oven to 400F/200C
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season the medallions with salt and pepper. Add pork to skillet, be sure not to over crowd the pan to ensure that the meat browns properly (About 2 minutes per side). Transfer pork to a baking dish, bake 15-17 minutes or until just a hint of pink remains in the pork.
For the sauce, deglaze the skillet with the cabernet sauvignon, reduce for 2 minutes and add remaining ingrediants. Reduce until the consistency is syrup-like, adjust seasoning if necessary.
Chef’s Note: Cabernet grapes are naturally fresh and fruity, allowing them to mix well with the black currants and match perfectly with roast pork.
