Serving Suggestions

Nothing could be easier—or more elegant—than this French preparation for sautéed steak, borrowed here for pork tenderloin. Quickly sautéed filet medallions are finished with a Worcestershire sauce and mustard pan sauce. If it is a special occasion, pair with truffled mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus. If it is Wednesday night, mashed potatoes and green peas with fit the bill. Add a green salad with vinaigrette and warm dinner rolls.
