Salt and pepper the tenderloin. Let rest on the counter while preparing other ingredients.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add a drizzle of oil and sear pork on all sides.Transfer to an oven proof baking dish and place in 400 degree oven until internal temperature is 150-155. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the pork loin. Remove pork to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm and rest before slicing and serving.
In the same skillet, add a bit more oil and 1 tablespoon of butter, Add shallot and cook for a few minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook a few minutes. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan.

Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
Slice pork into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve with sauce and a sprinkling of chives. Serves 4-6.
