Ingredients

Instructions

  • Sprinkle the pork tenderloin with the salt and pepper and slice into 8 equal sized medallions.
  • Melt a generous amount of ghee in a heavy skillet (preferably cast iron) set over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot enough, add the pork medallions and cook them for 4 minutes per side, without moving them, until they develop a nice golden crust. Remove to a plate to collect the juices.
  • Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook them, stirring often, until they turn a beautiful golden color, about 5 minutes. Don’t hesitate to add more ghee if and as necessary.
  • When the mushrooms are cooked to your liking, add the fresh herbs and chicken stock, followed with tapioca starch diluted in water; bring to the boil and continue cooking until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute.
  • Add the medallions, along with their cooking juices, back into the pan and spoon some sauce over them.
  • Kill the heat and allow the meat to sit in the sauce for about 5 minutes, then serve.
