Pork Loin with Mushroom Sauce

07 September 2008 6 comments

This is a Roast Pork dish that is usually served by our catering business in Pasig. It's simple to make yet elegant enough to serve in parties.You have to start with a good cut of lean Pork Loin, it has to be large enough so it won't disintegrate when you cut it after it had been tenderized. We don't have a special name for this dish. We call this dish 'pork loin with mushroom sauce'. Big thanks to my mom for teaching me how to make this dish.

1 large slab of lean Pork Loin
salt and pepper
4 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 can of small tomato paste
5 cups of chicken stock
1 stick of butter
1 small onion, minced
2 tbsp flour
1 cup broth from the cooked pork loin
1 small can of Cream of Mushroom (use regular not low fat)
1 cup grated cheese (any kind)

Wash and dry the pork loin. Season with salt and pepper. Heat cooking oil in a large pot, brown all sides of the pork loin. Add the tomato paste and scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken stock and stir until the tomato paste is dissolved. Cook until the pork loin is tender, stirring the pot once in a while and adding chicken stock if the liquid becomes too low. Set aside 1 cup of the broth to be used in the next step.

Heat the oven to 350 deg F.

In a smaller pot, in medium heat, add butter. When butter is melted, saute the onions until it's cooked but not browned. Add the flour and cook for a minute or two. Then add the broth (that was set aside from the pork loin) a little at a time to prevent lumps. Wait for it to boil. When it's boiling, add the Cream of Mushroom and stir thoroughly.

Take the roast pork loin and cut it into 1/4 inch slices. Set aside. In a pyrex dish, pour 1 cup of the sauce on the bottom. Arrange the roast pork loin slices in the pyrex dish. Pour more sauce on top of the pork loin. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the pork loin. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, just enough for the pork to be reheated through and the cheese to melt. Serve with rice.

    Hi! your recipe sounds good. I love trying new recipes once in a while and yours tickled my taste buds. It looks delicious and elegant. How long did it took you to make this dish(from preparation to cooking/baking)?. My husband is sometimes a picky eater that's why I'm going to make this for dinner and see if he likes it or not. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Hi Valerie, the boiling part takes the longest so everything depends on the size of the pork loin. The oven part doesn't take long since everything is cooked and it only reheats the pork, sauce and melts the cheese. So I would approximate everything to take 1-1 1/2 hrs. Thanks for visiting!

    I tried this recipe the other day, and it turned out so yummy! My hubby loved it. The boiling part does take the longest, but it's all worth it. The only thing I added was a pinch of salt and that's it. Thanks so much for the recipe Babette! Looking forward to more recipes! :D
