"I recently began experimenting with pork and came up with this easy dish, which has turned out to be a favorite," writes Marilyn McGee of Tulsa, Oklahoma. "I like to vary it occasionally by using lemon-pepper or garlic-seasoned tenderloin for added flavor."

"This was very good and easy to throw together. The only thing I changed was to brown the pork in a small amount of butter instead of olive oil. They browned nicely and were tender. Served it over noodles, next time will serve with mashed potatoes. yum yum"

"I have to give this a 4 because I prefer my pork a little more tender and the amount of time in a skillet does not make it tender enough for me. The flavor was awesome though! We loved the taste but not the pork. In a couple wees we will try again but I will put it in the crockpot so it comes out more the way we like the pork....tender. I'll bet in the crockpot this would be a 5 star."

"My husband and I did not particularly enjoy the pork tenderloin cooked in this manner. The texture of the meat was kind of rubbery. We love the whole tenderloin grilled or roasted in the oven, but this method of cooking was not best for this cut of meat, in my opinion. I gave it 3 stars because the sauce was tasty. I suspect this recipe would be better for pork chops and will probably give that a try sometime."

"This is just sooo delicious!!! I made it according to the recipe (w/o mushrooms, though) and it was great! The next time, I only had an envelope of pork gravy so I used that with apple cider vinegar in place of was even better!! Thanks so much for this recipe...I'm making it again tonight for dinner!"

"My husband and sister devoured this and my husband wants it again. I did like some other reviewers suggested and increased the water to one cup, then I served it over garlic smashed potatoes. Soooo yummy! If I could give it six stars I would."
