Lemony pork tenderloin recipe, pork tenderloin with lemon sauce, artichoke bottoms, tomatoes and a few basil biscuits, festive and so flavorful, a recipe to share with family and friends!
Sometimes I like to cook my ingredients separately into the same pot and assemble them at the end, it's the case with this recipe.
To make this lemony pork tenderloin you'll need to
- First bake the biscuits, which are totally optional
- Cook the artichoke bottoms, I used frozen, that's the only way I can find them but it's so handy, depending on the brands their flavor can be very strong, I cook them in boiling water with a tablespoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar, that will soften their taste, then once cooled I feel them to check for tough parts and remove them with a sharp knife
- Roast the tenderloin on all sides, then simmer 20 minutes, set aside
- Make the sauce with diced tomatoes, a few Paris mushrooms, white wine, lemon juice and zest, finally I add the tenderloin and sliced artichoke bottoms just to re-heat, delicious and full of Mediterranean flavors!
Serve with a side of roasted potatoes to add a touch of crispness!

Into the Dutch oven, on medium heat, add a little bit of oil if necessary, add the shallots, tomato cubes, mushrooms, basil, simmer gently,
Check the artichoke bottoms for any hard parts and remove them, slice the artichokes and add them to the other vegetables
Add corn starch to the broth, stir and pour onto the vegetables, give it a boil then lower the heat to medium/high and simmer to thicken the sauce a bit
