For the pork

  • 2 pork tenderloins about 800 gr each
  • 4 leaves of sage
  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Rosemary
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Ginger

For the sauce

  • Feta cheese around 400 gr (or goat cheese)
  • 1 heavy cream 500 ml
  • 1 shot of white wine 
  • ⅓ spoon of rosemary
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

For the serving

  • Cheese
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Sage leaves

How to prepare the pork tenderloin

Step 1: Chop the sage.

Step 2: In the mini food processor put the olive oil, and the chopped sage and beat for 2 minutes.

Step 3: And extremely important! As you know, pork tenderloin is not uniform in shape. At its edge, it is thinner. This means, that you have to cut the edge of it so that it cooks evenly! 

Step 4: Brush all the pieces of the pork, on all sides, with the sage oil. Then add the rest of the spices.

Step 5: In a non-stick pan, put some olive oil, and once it’s hot:

-Bake the pork tenderloin for 8 minutes, on each side.

-Bake its end sides for 5 minutes.

-During the last 5 minutes, cover the pan with a lid.

Do not lift the meat to see if it is cooked. Follow the times and don’t be afraid that it will burn!

Step 6: Place the pork on a plate and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Leave the meat covered for about 15-20 minutes, without opening it at all. In the meantime, let’s go make the amazing cheese sauce!

Step 7: Grate the cheese. I use feta cheese or odorless goat cheese.

Step 8: In a non-stick saucepan, put the cheese, cream, wine, salt, plenty of black pepper, and rosemary. Over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese is completely melted.

How to serve

Step 9: Cut the cheese into the shape you like, as long as it is the same thickness to cook evenly. Bake in a griddle pan or regular pan.

Step 10: Place the pork on a cutting board and cut it into slices of equal thickness. You will see that while it is dark on the outside, it is juicy and tender inside, always properly cooked but without drying out!

Step 11: Transfer the pork tender to the plate, pour over the warm goat cheese sauce, put two slices of grilled cheese and the tomatoes and…
