Featured Holiday Recipe: Chairman's Reserve® Pork Tenderloin Diane
November 19, 2020
The team at Smart Foodservice thanks Chairman’s Reserve® for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.
This savory recipe puts a spin on the steak Diane by featuring Chairman’s Reserve® pork tenderloin. Made popular in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, fine dining restaurants cooked this dish tableside for their customers.
Cognac was typically used in the sauce, which was lit by the waitperson and made for a very theatrical presentation.
This holiday recipe skips the alcohol, but keeps all the delicious flavors of the original. It uses Chairman’s Reserve® pork tenderloin, an exceptional cut of meat. The product is held to the strictest standards and is always tender, juicy, and flavorful.
This dish comes together easily, with a sprinkle of lemon pepper and a few other mouthwatering ingredients. Plus, the combination of Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, lemon juice, and parsley in a savory sauce complements the meat perfectly.
While enjoying this dish with family and friends, you can share a few fun facts about the origination of its name.
Steak Diane (or, in this case, pork tenderloin Diane) was named after the Roman goddess Diane (or Diana) who was Goddess of the Hunt and the Moon.
