Quick-cooking and elegant, this pork tenderloin recipe could work for a dinner party or special occasion, but also works well on a regular weeknight for a casual dinner. Searing the seasoned pork tenderloin first helps the meat achieve a lovely browned crust, but also reduces the cooking time in the oven.
Once the pork is in the oven, the same pan is used to saute a decadent combination of fennel, mushrooms, garlic and peppery arugula. And that’s not all! The warm fennel and mushroom saute is served with topping of crumbled blue cheese for a rich, umami finish. If you wanted to change things up a bit, you could even serve the pork tenderloin with a raw salad of the same side dish ingredients; just slice the fennel thinly and toss together with the mushrooms, blue cheese, greens, cheese and a light lemon vinaigrette.
