Pork Tenderloin with Gravy Recipe

"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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 3/4 pound), cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients until blended; set aside. In a large skillet, brown pork in oil on all sides. Stir in the gravy mixture, mushrooms and onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until meat juices run clear and vegetables are tender. Serve over rice. Yield: 2 servings.

"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."

"With a couple adjustments, this is really good. Increase water to 1 cup, only use 1/2 T. balsamic vinegar, and add 1/4 tsp. black pepper. I make this often."

"I absolutely loved this recipe. It was so EASY! and the pork cam out so tender! I am not a fan of balsamic vinegar in most things, and even as i started to cook this i was hesitant to put it in and almost got sick from the smell. I thought the dish would not turn out, but after it was one IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! I also cubed my pork loin instead of slicing it. (kind of like a beef tips and rice kinda thing) I served it with rice and it was SO GOOD! I will definitely be making this often!"

"Excellent...DH and Papa said it was a keeper too.

I changed it a little bit.
I made a double amount of gravy because my tenderloins were bigger, and added a little extra water than called for. It would also be wonderful with a bit of Marsala or Madeira added for part of the water. I added extra garlic and several tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary.
I sauteed onions and mushrooms some before adding tenderloin back, and adding the gravy mixture.
Next time I make it, I think I will cube the tenderloin, and then serve it over egg noodles or rice...leftovers, if any, I will add a little sour cream and fresh chopped parsley to make its rerun a bit new and different ;-)"
