2 (12-ounce) pork tenderloins, trimmed
salt and pepper
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons)
3 tablespoons minced fresh chives (I omitted this since I forgot to pick it up at the store)

1. Adjust over rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Pat tenderloins dry with paper towels and season with pepper. Wrap each tenderloin with prosciutto.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook pork until browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer meat to wire rack set in foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake until meat registers 145 degrees, 15 to 18 minutes. (This took me 18 minutes.)

3. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in now-empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add flour, garlic and thyme and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in broth and lemon juice and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Off heat, add chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Slice pork and serve with sauce.
