Porcini Pork Tenderloin

One thing to remember about dried porcini mushrooms, is that they often have some sand/grit with them. Since this recipe calls for you to use the soaking liquid, you might want to strain it through a couple layers of cheesecloth or a very fine-mesh strainer.

Porcini Pork Tenderloin
Yields: 6 servings

c extra virgin olive oil
c herbes de Provence
4 T garlic, minced
3 # pork tenderloin
c dried porcini mushrooms
1 c boiling water
c cognac
1 lemon, juiced
3 shallot, thinly sliced
c heavy cream
4 T unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
2 T honey
coarse salt and ground black pepper to taste

In a large measuring cup, mix together olive oil, herbes de Provence, and garlic. Place tenderloin in a large, rectangular baking pan. Pour olive oil mixture over meat, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Soak mushrooms in boiling hot water for 10 minutes to rehydrate.
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Remove meat from marinade, and discard any remaining marinade. Place meat in hot pan, and brown evenly. Return meat to baking dish.
Cook tenderloin in preheated oven about 15 – 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meat is 150F (65C). Remove from oven, and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
Meanwhile, combine the water in which the mushrooms were soaked, cognac, lemon juice, and shallots in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until liquid is almost gone. Pour in the cream. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Chop mushrooms, and stir into the sauce. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens. Stir in the butter and honey. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over sliced tenderloin.

Sounds like another winner. I'll give it a try.
