Mørbradgryde – mørbradbøffer med løg og svampe – Pork Tenderloin in a Mushroom Onion Cream Sauce

Pork tenderloin is a popular cut of pork, and it is with a good reason. The meat is both tender and lean. You can cut it into steaks or make a roast or grill the whole tenderloin in a pan or in the oven. 
Traditionally, pork tenderloin is cut into steaks and served with fried onions, cream sauce, mushrooms and potatoes. Below is a recipe that is a classic Danish dish with a different spin on a pork tenderloin dinner. The Pork Tenderloin is cut into steaks, and served with a delicious onion, leek, and mushroom cream gravy.

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 pound mushrooms, sliced

  • 1-2 tbsp butter                              
  • Salt and pepper
  • paprika
  • 1 tsp. mustard -optional
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
  • Serve with rice or cooked or mashed potatoes
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley

Instruction:

  2. Chop parsley finely.
  3. Remove fat and tendons from the pork tenderloin, and cut in into approx. 1 inch thick slices.
  4. Peel and chop the onion. 
  5. Slice the leek.
  6. Clean the mushrooms and cut them in quarters.
  7. Fry onions and leek in the butter for a couple of minutes before you add the mushrooms. Remove everything from the pan, and fry the pork tenderloin steaks. Sprinkle the pork with salt, pepper and paprika.  Return the onion, leek and mushroom mixture to the pan, and finally add the beef bouillon cube and the heavy cream. Optional add mustard.
  8. Do not overcook the tenderloin, or it will dry out. It should only be cooked till all the pink is gone.
  9. Let the meat sit in the mixture for several minutes to warm up again before you serve it.
