Pork tenderloin with creamy white wine sauce is a restaurant quality meal that is easily made at home. Pair it with some roasted vegetables and you have a complete meal that feels like a night out.
A pork tenderloin is something I keep in the freezer all the times because there are so many ways to cook it. Topping it with a creamy white wine sauce makes it feel like you are ordering in a restaurant but without having to leave your house (or change out of your comfy clothes).
There are so many ways to cook the pork tenderloin but I chose to roast it in the oven to make it super easy. If I have time, I sear it quickly on the stove and then transfer it to the oven. You can easily grill it or cook it on the stove. Choose your favorite.
If you don’t have a pork tenderloin or prefer something else, this white wine sauce is delicious on chicken, fish or even pasta.
When choosing a wine for this creamy white wine sauce, choose a dry wine like a chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Either will go well in the sauce because they don’t have a lot of residual sugar.
