Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle.
Pat pork tenderloin dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into ¾"-thick medallions. Season both sides of medallions with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Roast the Vegetables
Place Brussels sprouts and carrot on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil into vegetables.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender and lightly browned, 15-17 minutes.
While vegetables roast, cook medallions.
Cook the Medallions
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add medallions to hot pan. Cook until browned and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.
Transfer medallions to a plate.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook medallions to medium-high heat and add demi-glace, brown sugar, and ¼ cup water. Stir occasionally until thickened, 1-2 minutes,
Remove from burner and swirl in butter. Return pork medallions and accumulated juices to pan and flip to coat.
