"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
2 tbsp. of fresh chopped parsley
1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
2 tbsp. heavy cream or half and half

Lightly season pork tenderloins with salt and pepper, and then dredge in flour. Heat a 12” skillet over high heat. Add 4 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil. Sear the pork evenly on all sides. Reduce the heat to med-low. Add brandy, then cover the pan and cook until the internal temperature is 130° F. or medium rare. Remove the meat to a platter and cover with foil and a towel. Let rest for about 5-7 minutes. Using the same skillet, turn heat to med-high and melt the butter and olive oil. Add mushrooms and garlic, sauté for about 4 minutes. Add rosemary, parsley, and cream. Season to taste. Slice pork into medallions, and pour the herb mushrooms over the meat.
