6 Tbsp. butter
½ lb. pork tenderloin, cut into ½” thick slices
to taste, salt and freshly ground black pepper

In large skillet, cook onion in 1 Tbsp. butter until caramelized, about 8 minutes. Remove from pan. Dust pork with salt, pepper and paprika. Melt 1 Tbsp. more butter in pan and sear pork 1 minute per side. Remove from pan.

Add remaining 4 Tbsp. butter, wine and broth; heat until butter is melted. Stir in onions and mustard and simmer about 10 minutes to reduce it. Add grapes; heat 30 seconds then add pork. Heat just until warmed, about 30 seconds. Serve on mashed potatoes; sprinkle with sage.
