Pork Tenderloin with Red Wine and Plume Sauce

Although not exactly braising per se, this pork tenderloin is getting some grill pan-searing here, which is followed by a 20-minute roasting at medium-high temperature. Now we’ll have plenty of time to put together a delicious plum sauce made with red wine. Our suggestion is to serve the meat thus flavored over rice.


1 pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh thyme, chopped
3 garlic cloves
1 cup red wine
2 cinnamon sticks
3 plums, pitted
1 tablespoon plum jam


  1. Place the meat on the work surface, drizzle it with the olive oil, and season it with thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub in.
  2. Heat 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a grill pan over high heat. Add the coated pork together with the garlic.
  3. Fry for 5-6 minutes on all sides until grill the grill marks appear.
  4. Transfer to the oven and roast for 20 minutes at 375⁰F/190⁰C.
  5. Pour the wine into a pot over low heat and season with thyme. Add the cinnamon sticks, plums, and plum jam. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 8 minutes.
