Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 pound pork tenderloin, silver skin removed, cut into thin slices
- 1 bulb fennel, fronds removed, halved, cored, sliced thin
- 1/2 cup Stonewall Kitchen Champagne Maine Maple Champagne Mustard or Blue Cheese Herb Mustard
- 1/2 cup whipping cream or half and half
- Garnish: minced chives (optional)
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork slices with salt and pepper. When oil is hot, add pieces of pork and sauté 2-3 minutes per side. Do this in batches so as not to overcrowd. Transfer pork to plate and keep warm.
- Add fennel to skillet and saute 1 to 2 minutes; stir in 1/4 cup water; cover and cook 4-5 minutes or until fennel is crisp-tender.
- Stir in the Mustard and whipping cream. Heat over low heat for 4-5 minutes.
- Return pork and any accumulated juices to skillet and cook 3-4 minutes or until hot. Garnish with chives, if desired.
