Herby Lemon Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Perfect for a Sunday! If you’re not a fan of parsley, use any fresh herbs you have in the house or a mixture.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 450g pork tenderloin, cut into 8 medallions
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
To serve:
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Green vegetables

Instructions:

  1. Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat.
  2. Season the pork medallions generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in the pan for 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate, cover with tin foil and allow to rest.
  3. Return the same pan to a medium heat and add the remaining olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat.
  4. Add the lemon zest and juice along with the parsley. Stir until combined.
  5. Place the pork medallions on serving plates and spoon the sauce over the top.
