Sage Mushroom Sauce



In culinary school, I had a finals project in which I had to create & design a restaurant (determine its location, demographics and competition, draw a floor plan, purchase all equipment/furniture/dishes & flatware/decor items; write a menu & the recipes for everything on the menu). This sauce is from my entree Roasted Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Sage Mushroom Sauce (over homemade cornbread dressing).
The picture I've included is that particular entree (as I don't have one of just the sauce).
