  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Small Pot

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" pieces. Peel and mince shallot. Trim woody ends off asparagus. Drain green peppercorns. Pat pork tenderloin dry, and season all over with ½ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Sear the Pork Tenderloin

    Sear the Pork Tenderloin

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and pork tenderloin to hot pan. Sear until well-browned on two sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer pork tenderloin to one side of prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Finish the Pork Tenderloin and Asparagus

    Finish the Pork Tenderloin and Asparagus

    Add asparagus to empty half of baking sheet. Spray asparagus with cooking spray and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer on their half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until asparagus is tender and pork tenderloin reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-15 minutes. Rest pork at least 5 minutes, then cut into ½" slices. While pork roasts, make carrot mash.

  • Step 4 - Mash the Carrot

    Mash the Carrot

    Add carrot to boiling water and cook until tender, 10-12 minutes. Drain carrot in a colander and return to pot. Add butter and mash until fairly smooth. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to sear pork to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add half the shallot (or more, if you love shallot) to hot pan and stir occasionally, 1 minute. Add sherry and bring to a boil. Boil, 30 seconds. Stir in cream, green peppercorns, demi-glace, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Return to a boil and stir constantly until creamy, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, shingling pork over sauce. Bon appétit!
