Fig and Rosemary Pork

I love figs and they are available for only a brief time each year, so you gotta jump on them while you can. And this week at my Publix, black mission figs (my fave) were buy one get one free - SCORE! The Publix Apron's meal of the week was this fig and rosemary pork recipe. Pork tenderloins were also on sale - DOUBLE SCORE! This recipe is definetly worthy for a romantic night or for guests.

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped (I hate buying fresh rosemary, because I never use it all, so just use dried rosemary if you want)
3 shallots, thinly sliced
10 small fresh figs, coarsely chopped
1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb)
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

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.

I made mashed potatoes to serve with this dish.
