Pork with green olives

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons Butter
1 teaspoon Garlic; minced
2 tablespoons Almonds; slivered
1½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
1 cup Onion; sliced
½ pounds Mushrooms; sliced
1 cup Dry white wine
1 teaspoon Mint; minced
2 tablespoons Parsley; minced
12 Tsakistes green olives; pitted

Cut pork into 1 inch thick slices; cut slices in half. Melt butter in a large Dutch oven and brown meat with garlic and almonds. Season with salt and pepper. Add onions, mushrooms, wine, mint and parsley. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes, or until pork is tender. Add olives and heat through.

Terry's notes: Tsakistes are cracked green olives that are marinated in herbs and brine. They can be purchased in Greek specialty shops. Variation: Omit slivered almonds and tsakistes olives. Slice 12 green olives stuffed with almonds and add with 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice to the cooked tenderloin. Heat to blend flavors.

Chris' notes: I couldn't find tsakistes olives and used a good quality Kalamata olive instead. I also omitted the mushrooms because I don't like them. I added more almonds than called for and I chopped the onions instead of slicing. It was yummy!
