Pork Tenderloin with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese

This was one of the best recipes I have tried in quite some time! We all LOVED it including the picky kiddos. Of course we did not tell Miss Princess that we were eating pig..........we only called it Tenderloin and never used the word "pork"! LOL


1 Whole pork tenderloin (2 lb size)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 and 1/2 cups onions, sliced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
3 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp mustard
Mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper

Cut the tenderloin in approximately 1/2 inch pieces. Heat a heavy skillet, put in the oil and brown tenderloin on all sides. Sprinkle all of the tenderloin with salt and pepper. Place in a 9x13 inch pan.Add to the skillet the onions and saute until golden brown, then add the sugar. Next add the mushrooms and stir gently with the soy sauce and the mustard. Add the mushrooms and onions in the cooking pan. Add 1 cup water in the pan and bake in a 400 degree F. oven. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 45 min or until tender.

When done, take the pieces of meat and the mushrooms outside the pan and place them in a serving plate. Place a thin slice of Mozzarella cheese on top of each piece of meat. Leave it to melt. Take the sauce from the cooking pan and make gravy with hand mixer.

We served this with fresh green beans with new potatoes and I made gravy out of the pan drippings.

I must give full credit for this recipe to Aneliya @ Tandooris Journey.
