Pork tenderloin sautéed with chestnuts and celery. I love Chestnuts.

While growing up in Paris, the smell of roasted chestnuts is the first sign that the Holiday Season  is upon us. The wonderful smell will lead you to a street vendor with a roasting pan. There you can enjoy a bag of chestnuts warm straight out of the fire.

Well tonight they may not be roasted but vacuumed packed and this new recipe did turn out pretty good.

Most of all the sweet taste of the chestnuts and the celery will consequently give this new recipe a wonderful flavor to the pork. Pork tenderloin are my favorite as they cook faster thus making dinner in a jiffy.

Make sure that the sauce of the chestnut is not too dry.
