Preheat the oven to 485 degrees. Get an oven-safe frypan or grill pan, and put on the stove on medium-high heat. Drizzle the tenderloin with olive oil and coat lightly with chopped fresh herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper. When the pan is nice and hot, sear the pork on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Finish off in the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes (test for doneness using a meat thermometer.) Remove from oven (carefully) when pork is medium.
Using the same pan, heat the drippings over medium-high heat. Add the butter and mushrooms, and saute until the mushrooms are soft. Add the red wine and sugar, and reduce. Add more wine as it cooks down, stirring constantly.
Slice the pork tenderloin into medallions and finish with the pan sauce. Serve over wild rice pilaf, with fresh vegetables on the side.
