Pork Medallions with Miso-Mushroom Sauce

By Logo inline

There are as many varieties of sake, a rice wine, as there are of, well, wine. Try a Junmai sake in this hearty but simple sauce; the added fruitiness complements the shiitakes. Make It a Meal: Try quick-cooking barley and a glass of Sapporo beer.

Ingredients
  • Total Time: 45 minutes

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch-thick slices

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 14 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced (6 cups)

  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)

  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4 cup sake, (see Ingredient notes)

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 4 scallions, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon miso, (see Ingredient notes)

Directions
  1. 4 servings

  2. Place 1/4 cup flour on a large plate and dredge pork slices in it, shaking off the excess.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until golden, crispy and just barely pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a plate; tent with foil to keep warm.

  4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add shiitake and white mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until softened and beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons flour over the mushrooms; stir to coat. Add broth, sake, vinegar and pepper and bring to a simmer over high heat, stirring often. Reduce heat and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and slightly reduced, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in scallions and miso. Return the pork to the pan, turn to coat with the sauce, and simmer until heated through, about 1 minute. Serve the pork topped with the sauce.
