Pork Fillet in Vinsanto Sauce


  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 pork tenderloin, sliced in 1" pieces
  • 1 chopped red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Vinsanto or other sweet wine
  • 1 tsp. Chopped fresh chives


In a large skillet, heat olive oil until hot, but not smoking.  Add pork fillets to the oil after sprinkling fillets with salt and pepper.  Sear pork on both one side, then turn and add onions in the pan.  Cook for one minute and then add flour and stir until moist.  Add wine and stir until there are no lumps from the flour.  Cook on medium-low heat until sauce has reduced to a syrup consistency.  Add chives and more salt, if necessary.  Serve with potatoes or puréed fava split peas (as they would in Greece)
