I was hankerin’ for some comfort food. Something that cooks slow all day, filling the house with a delicious aroma. This mushroom pork tenderloin was it. You know when you’ve hit the spot when all you hear are moans of delight when everyone starts eating. No one says a word. Perfect! I could sit down and eat a bowl of the mushroom gravy by itself, actually.
We served this mushroom pork tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. The sauce is crazy good over mashed potatoes. Well, it’s crazy good no matter what.
I like to use my good ole trusty Dutch oven to make this tenderloin and pretty much darned near anything like it on my stovetop. It’s nice and big and sturdy. That extra weight helps it maintain and distribute heat perfectly. As an added bonus, it’s actually pretty easy to clean up too!
I always run to the store whenever pork tenderloin goes on sale. It’s the pork equivalent of filet mignon. I rarely buy pork loin, it’s tougher, bigger cousin. And I shy away from anything pre-seasoned. I prefer to season my meat my way at home. Just me. You do you!
Also try my crazy-yummy pork medallions in mushroom Marsala sauce.

- Cover and cook for 4 hours or until pork begins to fall apart.
- Heat remaining oil over high heat in a small skillet.
