  2. Season the pork with salt and pepper (add chopped fresh herbs if desired).
  3. Heat oil and brown the pork evenly in a frying pan. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Cook 18-20 minutes or until a thermometer reads an internal temperature of 145° F (While the tenderloin is cooking, begin to prepare the mushroom sauce)
  5. Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

  2. Add mushrooms, thyme and salt and pepper. Cook till mushrooms have released juices.

  5. Whisk into broth and bring to a boil. Let cook 1 minute.
