To make the sauce, melt 1 1/2 sticks butter with 4 peeled cloves of garlic and add 8 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often.
Place the seasoned pork tenderloin in a 9x13-inch baking pan. Add 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar to the mushroom mix, then spoon the sauce over the pork. Roast uncovered at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 20 to 27 minutes. Remove when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, and rest the pork for 3 minutes before slicing and serving.Learn more about Meat
