How to cook Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin:
Look at that gravy!
After the pork is done, and resting – a little pan gravy is a super easy way to make a killer finishing touch. Plus, making gravy in the same pan you cooked your pork in, means you get alllll the flavor from the pork right there in the gravy.
Place the pan on the stove over medium-high, and sprinkle a little flour over the top of the pan juices, and make a paste. Whisk in the stock, and some salt/pepper to taste, and let it thicken. Ta-da!!
Here are the simple ingredients for this:
