Ingredients
  • 12 slices pork tenderloin, each 1/2-inch thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for liberal drizzling
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • A splash sherry or white wine
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 12 cornichons, halved or thinly sliced
  • Sliced baguette, for serving
Directions

Drizzle the pork with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the pork in 2 batches, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Arrange the pork on a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.

Reduce heat under the pan and add the butter to melt. Add the shallots, season with salt and lots of coarse pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir 1 minute. Add a generous splash of sherry, and then whisk in the stock and thicken. Stir in the mustard and cornichons.

Serve 3 medallions on each plate with lots of sauce, with bread alongside.
