Ingredients

1 pork tenderloin 300 g
6 pitted prunes 3 1/2 tbsp
1/3 cup beer 85 mL
1 shallots, finely chopped 40 g
4 leaves fresh sage, finely chopped 1 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/4 cup demi-glace sauce 65 mL
6 toothpicks
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

  1. In a small bowl, macerate the prunes in the beer for 15-30 min. Drain them, reserve the liquid, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 160 °C / 325 °F.
  3. Slit the fillets in half lengthwise in order to form a pocket, then salt and pepper the inside. Place 6 prunes side-by-side in each fillet. Close the pocket using tooth-picks (3 per fillet).
  4. Heat the oil and butter in a pan to a fairly high temperature. Brown the fillet(s) on each side, 6-8 min total, then transfer them into an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons of the macerating beer, and bake for about 13 min.
  5. Meanwhile, add the shallot to the pan, then sauté 3 min with stirring. Add the remaining macerating beer and deglaze until the liquid is reduced to a half (2-3 min). Add the sage and the demi-glace, then cook over medium heat for about 5 min.
  6. Take the dish out of the oven and remove the tooth-picks. Transfer the fillets with all the meat juice to the stovetop pan. Cook for 1-2 more min. Add salt and pepper to taste. Slice the fillets then place them on the warmed serving plates. Cover the slices with the cooking juices and serve.

Absolutely delish! Beer often gives me issues, whether I drink it or eat it and so I used Marsala wine instead. I didn't have demi-glace and so I used beef broth. It turned out great!!

Excellent, lots of flavor. Add more prune juice to increase the sweetness and sauce.
