Served with maple butter glazed sweet potatoes and sautéed haricots verts with shiitake mushrooms..
Trimmed pork tenderloin dredged in seasoned flour, dipped in egg wash with a little sweet sorghum syrup and cider vinegar then rolled in chopped pecans, walnuts, pistachios, almonds and fresh sage, rosemary and thyme.
Seal tightly, pressing nuts into the pork. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
To cook, unwrap pork and place in a 350 degree oven until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees (mine took about 25 minutes). Transfer meat to cutting board and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, deglaze the skillet with a little bourbon then add some stock and quickly reduce in volume by half. Add heavy cream and continue to reduce until thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in a spoonful of coarse mustard and finish with a knob of whole butter.
Arrange sliced pork tenderloin on a platter and dress with the bourbon sauce.
