Reviews for Pork Tenderloin with Horseradish Sauce
"Wonderfully delicious and tender. Really enjoyed it. Sauce was good too and not overpowering."
"Mmmm, mmmm, good! The seasoning on the meat is wonderful by itself, but it's even better with the sauce. We all really enjoyed this."
"Delicious!!!!! The only thing I did different was use tarragon in place of Rosemary b/c I was out of it. Ooh, and we used a LOT more garlic cloves inside the pork loin b/c we LOVE garlic. We would use this recipe for company. Even my 5 yr. old daughter liked it, which is saying a lot."
"I made this as an appetizer for a cocktail party I hosted. I used the small little dinner rolls and set up as "sliders". They were gone in a blink of an eye. The sauce makes this dish. The pork has an excellent taste and everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks for a great reccipe."
"This sauce is terrific with the pork tenderloin. We used the leftover sauce as a spread for pork sandwiches the next day. The lemon zest is a must for this recipe."
