Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 8-10
Onion Butter
  • 2 large white onions, rough chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, rough chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of cold butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • The juice of half a lemon
Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 Pork Tenderloin, silver skin removed
  • Montreal steak spice to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • Olive oil for searing
  1. Toss the chopped onions in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put on a roasting pan and cook in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven, stirring occasionally.
  2. After about a half hour the onions should be a light brown. Cook for another 10 minutes and then add in the chopped garlic. Make sure at this point to stir a lot as the garlic can burn even easier than the onions!
  3. Once the onions are a beautiful golden brown, add into a blender and add just a spoonful of water at a time until the onions are pureed fairly smooth. Add in the cold butter and lemon juice and blend until thoroughly combined. Add another spoonful of water if you need to!
