Pork Tenderloin Cutlets with Mustard Cream

  Servings: 6 to 8

• 1/4 pork tenderloins (each 3/4 to 1 pound), fat trimmed
• 1/2 teaspoon salad oil or olive oil
• 1 pound mushrooms, rinsed and sliced thinly
• 2 tablespoons minced shallots or green onion
• 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 1/2 cup liquid nonfat, nondairy creamer or whipping cream
• 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
• 1 teaspoon Worcestershire
• 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage leaves
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1/4 teaspoon sugar substitute (i.e.: Equal)
• About 1/4 cup minced chives or green onion tops
• Salt and pepper

1. Cut tenderloins across the grain into 1-inch-thick slices. Place 
pieces of meat well apart between sheets of plastic wrap. Pound firmly 
and gently with a flat mallet until meat is evenly about 1/4 inch thick; 
if making ahead, roll up meat in plastic wrap and seal in a plastic bag. 
Chill up to 1 day.
2. Rub bottom of a nonstick 10-12 inch frying pan with a light coating 
of oil. Place pan over medium-high heat; add mushrooms, shallots, 
garlic, and vinegar; stir often until mushroom liquid evaporates and 
slices begin to brown lightly, 10-12 minutes. Pour from pan into a 
container and keep warm.
3. Rub pan bottom lightly with more oil and place over high heat. When 
pan is hot, fill with some of the pork (do not crowd). Turn pieces just 
as edges turn white; cook until no longer pink in center (cut to test), 
about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes total. As cooked, transfer pork to container 
with mushrooms. Repeat until all the pork is cooked.
4. To pan, add the creamer, mustard, Worcestershire, sage, lemon juice, 
and alternative sweetener. Stir over high heat until boiling vigorously; 
drain any liquid from pork and mushrooms into pan and return to a boil. 
Remove sauce from heat. Quickly arrange on warm dinner plates equal 
portions of the meat with mushrooms on top. Pour sauce over servings and 
sprinkle with chives. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
