If you’re a fan of pork tenderloin, then pork Marsala is a must-try dish! Not only is it quick, easy, and delicious, but it’s also versatile enough to serve for both weeknight meals and special occasions.

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Marsala Wine: Marsala wine is a worthy addition to your kitchen pantry. It adds a unique flavor to your dishes and can be used in various recipes. If you don’t have Marsala wine, you can substitute it with a dry sherry.

  • Mushrooms: Feel free to use your preferred type of mushrooms. White or Cremini mushrooms work best for this sauce. Buying whole mushrooms and slicing them yourself allows you to control the thickness and texture of the mushrooms in the dish.

  • Heavy Cream: Using heavy cream contributes to achieving the best-textured sauce without making it too heavy or rich. If you prefer a lower-fat option, keep in mind that it may split in the acidic wine sauce and result in a thinner sauce. You can add a teaspoon of cornstarch to help with thickening.

Cook’s Notes

While pork tenderloin is the recommended choice for this dish, you can also use beef medallions or thinly sliced chicken breast. For pork lovers, boneless loin chops or bone-in pork chops would be great alternatives.

To achieve the best results, cook the dish on a medium-high to high heat, adjusting as needed based on your stove and pan. This ensures a good sear on the meat, golden and delicious mushrooms, and quick reduction of the sauce.

Top Tip

As this dish cooks quickly over high heat, it’s essential to have all your ingredients prepped, measured, and easily accessible near the stove. This way, you can effortlessly add them to the pan during the cooking process.
