Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Reduction


An awfully simple and easy meal that can be prepared in no time and yet tasty! I drizzled the balsamic reduction over the pork rather than around it so the dark colour doesn’t do it justice in this pic! :-p


Ingedients :

1 tablespoon olive oil

         1 tablespoon minced shallots

         1 garlic clove, minced

         1 cup balsamic vinegar

         1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided

         1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

         1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

         Cooking spray

         1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, cut into 12 slices

         1/2 teaspoon salt

         1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat
  • Add shallots and garlic; sauté 2 minutes
  • Add vinegar and next 3 ingredients and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup
  • Note that different balsamic vinegar have different levels of acidity so gauge the quantity of sugar required by adding 1/2 tsp at a time and taste before you add some more suga
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat
  • Coat pan with cooking spray
  • Season pork with salt and pepper
  • Place pork in pan and cook 2 minutes on each side
  • Add balsamic reduction and cook 1 minute, turning pork to coat
  • Serve up and drizzle excess balsamic reduction as desired
