Ginny Larkin


1/4 cup dijon mustard
1 tbl. olive oil
1 tbl. thyme
2 3/4lbs. pork tenderloin

Gorgonzola Sauce
1 tbl. butter
1 tbl. flour
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup gorgonzola cheese (about 4 oz.)

Oil large rimmed baking sheet.
Whisk dijon mustard, olive oil and thyme in small bowl to blend. Sprinkle pork tenderloins with salt and pepper. Heat heavy large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pork and sear until brown all over, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Transfer seared pork to prepared baking sheet. Spread mustard mixture over all sides of pork. (Can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead. Refrigerate pork uncovered.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roast pork until thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 150 degrees, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.

Melt 1 tbl. butter in heavy small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 tbl. flour and whisk 1 minute. Gradually whisk in whipping cream, white wine and chicken broth. Boil until mixture is thick enough to coat spoon, whisking frequently, about 1 minute Add crumbled gorgonzola and whisk until cheese is melted and smooth and sauce is reduced to desired consistency, about 5 minutes.
Slice pork and transfer to plates. Ladle some sauce over pork. Serve, passing additional sauce separately.
Sauce can also be used on chicken.
