Excellent!!!! Followed the recipe exactly, except didn't finish with the flour because we had red potatoes and no gravy was needed. Just topped with left over pan juices, and that in itself was amazing. The mushrooms! Oh the mushrooms that comes from this recipe are DELICIOUS! Yummy easy weeknight recipe!! Read More

My wife claimed this to be the best dish ever last night. I added yellow peppers with the mushrooms which added a distinct flavour to the gravy. I removed the mushrooms and peppers before making the gravy. I served the pork on basmatti rice cooked in chicken broth, served with steamed vegetables tossed in pesto. Read More

Really good. I added more butter, chopped onions and a little white wine so there would be more gravey for the rice -- for the kids:) Read More

This was WONDERFUL!! I made a couple of very small changes. Added some onion, used more mushrooms (and a bit more butter). Then when I did the gravy I used about a tablespoon of Burgandy cooking wine. It was heavenly. NO LEFTOVERS TONIGHT! It was all gone in 10 minutes! Will make this one often! Read More

My family really enjoyed this dish, even my 10 month old. I used a Pork loin rather than a tenderloin and it was still delicious. I just had to cook it a little longer. I didn't have Marjoram so I used Thyme instead and really liked the flavor. I also used Portobello mushrooms which gave it more flavor. I will make this often! Read More

Broke my habit of onions with everything and didn't miss them at all with this dish. The lemon juice brightened the flavor and the resulting gravy was sinfully delicious. Only change I made was to thinly slice the garlic and add to the pan for cooking time (it dissolved, but the subtle flavor enhanced the gravy). A winner here! Read More

Fantastic!!!! I used portobello mushrooms and 1/2 a diced yellow onion. I also put the mushrooms and onions in when it was simmering so they carmalized. I also used both thyme and marjoram. I served it with red bliss mashed potatoes. It was a big hit with my family. Read More

Very nice and easy. The pork turned out nice and tender. I should have added onion at the beginning because I found the gravy just a little bland. Will make again. Read More
