Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Plum Sauce

Recipe by  

"When shopping for this recipe be sure to choose plums (or any other stone fruit) that are fairly firm so they keep their shape after roasting. You know that selfish jerk that has to feel-up every piece of fruit before deciding on one? This time, be that jerk."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Generously season pork tenderloin with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook tenderloin until browned on all sides, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer tenderloin to a plate.
  3. Saute onion with a pinch of salt in the same skillet until just softening, 3 to 5 minutes. Add shallots, reduce heat to medium, and cook and stir until shallots and onion are golden brown and caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir thyme into onion mixture; place tenderloin over onion mixture, and set plum quarters, skin-side down, around pork tenderloin.
  5. Cook until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer pork and plums to a plate.
  6. Place skillet over medium-high heat and pour water and balsamic vinegar into onion mixture. Bring mixture to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook and stir until liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes; remove from heat. Whisk butter into mixture until melted and sauce is shiny. Pour sauce over pork and plums.

Followed the directions to the letter, and found the sauce to be a little diluted and bland. I added more balsamic and let it reduce which helped intensify the flavor, but I was expecting more from the sauce (and my plums were perfectly ripe and tasty). I'm wondering if mashing one of the plum wedges into the sauce or perhaps adding more thyme to it would add more flavor? You may want to start checking the pork temperature well before 20 minutes, because mine reached 145 degrees F at about 12 minutes (oven temps do vary). We enjoyed it, it was very moist and tender, and I definitely will make this again, but I will concentrate on improving the sauce (personal taste preference, I suppose).

Great recipe! My family loved it. Only issue I see with the recipe itself is that it never tells you to put the pan in the oven. Had I not watched the video I would have never known.

I have made this recipe many times. I also add more Balsamic to my sauce. I use a larger tenderloin and add more fruit. I have also made it with Apples, fantastic. Love it and it freezes well.
