Pork Tenderloin in a White Sauce


PT in Pc in white saauce

This is a popular Italian way to cook pork.  The milk tenderizes the meat  while cooking.  As the milk evaporates, it combines with the juices of the meat and makes a delicious sauce. It is amazing how easily it is to make such a delicious meal.


  • 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary or your favorite herb
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Trim visible fat off of pork tenderloin.
  2. Peel and mince garlic clove
  3. Mince parsley
  4. In a bowl, combine milk, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper.


You could cook this pork tenderloin in either a stove top pressure cooker or one of the electric pressure cookers.  I personally would use a stove top.  I would recommend the Kuhn Rikon Pressure cooker if you are looking for top of the line pressure cooker.
