Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup port wine

1 cup chicken stock

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter

1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar, plus more to taste if desired

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, silver skin removed, and sliced crosswise into 1-inch pieces


  1. Heat oil in a medium, heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Pat pork dry, and season with salt and pepper. Cook pork in oil until brown, about 4 minutes or until cooked to desired doneness. Transfer to a warm platter; set aside.
  2. Remove skillet from heat. Discard fat, and add port; return skillet to heat. Deglaze pan, scraping with a wooden spoon to loosen the browned bits from the bottom.. Continue cooking until sauce is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Add stock, and cook until sauce is lightly syrupy, about 4 minutes. Whisk in butter, a little at a time, gently shaking pan while whisking. Stir in vinegar. Taste, and adjust for seasoning. Spoon sauce over pork, and serve immediately.
