Pork Tenderloin Awesomeness

Perfect for a dinner party or comforting family meal, this is the easiest meal and so flavorful - just make sure you have enough for seconds!


1½ – 2lb Pork Tenderloin
3 tbs olive oil
¼ cup brandy, bourbon or whisky
½ jar New Canaan Farms Onion & Garlic Jam
½ cup chicken or beef stock
2 tbsp whipping cream or whole Greek yogurt
Salt and pepper

Serve with

Mashed potato or roasted mini potatoes, steamed green vegetables and warm bread

A jar of New Canaan Caramelized Onion Garlic Jam
Medallions of raw pork tenderloin, tenderized and seasoned, on a white cutting board
Ready for the pan!


  • Slice the pork into 1# rounds, and bash them with a rolling pin to tenderize, until they are about ½ inch thick. Season generously with salt and pepper
  • Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan (cast iron if you have it) and add the pork in batches so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook for about 2 mins on each side on a high heat to seal in the flavor, until each side is golden brown. Remove and keep warm in a low oven
  • Once all the pork is sealed, drain off any excess oil, lower the heat and add the alcohol, stirring to incorporate all the caramelized flavors from the pan
  • Stir in the New Canaan Farms Garlic and Onion jam, as well as the heated stock. Bring to a low rolling simmer for a few minutes to allow the sauce to thicken
  • Add the pork to the sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°
  • Remove from the heat and drizzle in the whipping cream, stirring gently to combine. Note that if you’re using fabulous Greek yogurt instead, you will have to temporarily remove the pork to combine it into the sauce properly – it takes a bit more stirring to integrate!
  • Serve immediately with potatoes, green vegetables and fresh warm bread. I roasted small potatoes and placed the pork and the sauce over the top, which worked great, but if you don’t mind the extra work, mashed potatoes are fabulous with this dish

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
