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."
"This was delicious! I did not make the Horseradish Sauce as my husband is not a fan of horseradish. I seasoned the pork and cooked it in a croc-pot. Very tender and flavorful. But I can see where the horseradish sauce would have given it an extra kick if you are a fan of that."
"I've made this twice and both times my husband loved it. Even the granddaughter admitted it was good."
"Easy & excellent"
"Both the tenderloin and the sauce was terrific! My husband truly enjoyed both and said this recipe was a keeper! Thank you for sharing!"
"SUPER good - I made my own steak seasoning using salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, & garlic powder, and doubled the rosemary & thyme. In my oven it took 40 minutes -- Came out perfect, wonderfully juicy and tender. LOVE the horseradish sauce with it."
