Seasoned with garlic, marjoram and a bit of lemon juice, this tender pork entree comes together can even make the mouthwatering gravy in the same skillet.—Kathleen Mackey, Waterville, Quebec.

"I used thin sliced pork because I had it on hand. Instead of rubbing it with garlic I used garlic powder. It was fast and easy to make but really lacked flavor. I didn't think it tasted bad but I don't think I'll make it again. My husband said it was very bland and got out the bbq sauce to dip it in. I liked it for something easy to make but it was definitely missing something."

"Easy to make, even on a work night. Good basic flavors that no one at your table should object to. I also used garlic powder instead of fresh like another reviewer. Make the seasonings adjustments you need to so it's just right for your family. I had to double the recipe to feed a family of 5, 3 of whom are guys!"

"This was alright but not really amazing. I served it over potatoes and the family sort of picked at it. When I asked my husband what he thought he said it was good but they'd been spoiled by better recipes. I think I agree with him."

"Great taste. I use some pork loin so I ended up having to slice it to finish cooking it but it was moist and tender."
