Wine and mushrooms lend elegance to this oh-so-simple pork dish. Use pre-sliced mushrooms and minced garlic to save time. Cleanup is one-pan easy. —Kim Gillis, High Falls, New York

"My husband made this for one of our Saturday night dinners. I loved it, and so did he. We made one small change...we used pork tenderloin because that's what we had. Thanks for posting, Kim."

"Loved the turkey bacon in it - wonderful smell, wonderful taste, have put it in my recipe box. I used chicken broth instead of wine. I used extra olive oil when I was preparing the mushrooms, onions and bacon. Every once in awhile I sniff the wonderful smell that it left in my kitchen. Will definitely make it again."

"My boyfreind and I loved!!! this recipe. I bought 8 thin sliced chops. I'm all for healthy, but used regular flour instead. I did though spend the money on the turkey bacon and crisped that up in the microwave first. perfect! I bought the marsala wine at my local grocery store which was a dry & sweet combo. Definitely saving it to my recipe box*****"

"Recipe does not state which wine....................dry or sweet? This makes me burning mad. I go get all ingredients and then find out at the liquor store there are both kinds! C'mon Taste of Home you should know better!"

"Didn't like the turkey bacon with the pork chop. Maybe my chops were exceptionally lean, but I had no drippings in my pan at all. The bacon did not become crisp (more the texture of rubber bands!) IF I ever made this again, I would eliminate the turkey bacon all together."
