Fig and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

It's my new favorite season....fig season. For real, if you've never had a fig, try this recipe and you'll be hooked. I found this in last weeks Publix ad and it worked out well because almost everything was on sale. I made this Sunday night and after the first bite, I knew I had to share with What's Cookin' Wednesday. This recipe serves 4.

Here's what you need:
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 10 small fresh figs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb) - I made a 2lb one since I wanted leftovers
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 4 oz Deli diced pancetta (or bacon)
  • 1 cup fresh pre-sliced baby portabellas
  • 3/4 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/3 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

What to do:
  • Season pork with rosemary, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon oil; let stand 5–10 minutes to marinate. Preheat grill pan (or grill).
  • Place pork in grill pan (or on grill); grill 15–20 minutes, turning occasionally, or until 160°F (for medium). Let stand 5–10 minutes before slicing.
  • Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, then add pancetta, mushrooms, shallots, and figs; cook 2–3 minutes or until pancetta is golden and mushrooms are tender.
  • Add wine; cook 2–3 minutes, stirring often, or until liquid has reduced by about one-half.
  • Add broth; cook 2–3 more minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in butter. Slice pork, then top with sauce. Serve.
