They're great cooked whole, but you also can chop a tenderloin into bite-size pieces for this Saucy Pork Bites recipe.
A little finely chopped rosemary would be a good addition to the sauce, and sauteed sliced mushrooms would be delicious, too. You can substitute chicken breast meat or steak (use beef broth instead of chicken broth when using steak).
This is a quick and easy family meal that I like to serve with hot mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli or green beans.
SAUCY PORK BITES
1 1/2 pounds tenderloin, cut into cubes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 14.5-ounce can chicken broth
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Hot mashed potatoes, for serving
Chopped fresh parsley, optional, for garnish
Combine flour, garlic salt and pepper on a plate. Toss pork cubes in flour mixture until coated.
In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Brown pork cubes, turning several times, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add broth and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve over mashed potatoes and garnish with a little chopped parsley, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
