Dijon Cream Cheese Sauce Ingredients
The creamy sauce adds an elegant touch to a dinner ready in just 45 minutes. Dijon mustard has a deeper, earthier flavor than regular, “hot dog style” mustard.
Feel free to adjust the spices according to your taste.
- Chicken Stock – The base of the sauce and is also perfect to deglaze the pan.
- Cream – Must be the heavy variant, think full flavor feeling
- White Wine – gives you the French touch
- Dijon – This not only adds the main punch of flavour, but it’ll also help thicken the sauce.
- Oregano– This pairs amazingly with both mustard and pork.
- Garlic – An extra flavour booster.
- Ancho – An extra flavour/heat booster.
- Cheese – The final touch for the creaminess
What is the difference between Loin and Tenderloin?
Be careful when picking out your meat. Pork loin and pork tenderloin are two different cuts of meat. Pork loins are bigger and typically used for roasts, yielding a completely different texture. Tenderloin is smaller, longer, and a darker red than a pork loin. Tenderloins also cook faster than pork loins.
Did you know, the pork tenderloin comes from a muscle that runs along the spine. It is long, thin, and very lean. It is not a well-used muscle, so it is very tender.
