If you like the robust flavor of olives, tomatoes, and rosemary, this is the dish for you. I find it works best using a cast iron skillet.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloins
- 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped green olives
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork on all sides in the skillet.
Mix the tomatoes, olives, wine, rosemary, and garlic in a bowl. Pour over the pork. Season with salt and pepper.
Place skillet with pork in the preheated oven, and bake 30 minutes, to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).
Remove pork from skillet, leaving remaining tomato mixture and juices. Place skillet over medium heat, and gradually mix in the cream. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and continue cooking 5 minutes, until thickened. Slice pork, and drizzle with the cream sauce to serve.
