Reviews for Pork Tenderloin with Wine Sauce
"I have made this several times and it is wonderful. I buy a one pound pork poin for $7.99...cut it into 2" slices (I get about 8 slices). I brown them for 3 minutes per side, remove them from the pan, then make the gravy using the wine, etc....then return the pork to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes. The pork is perfect and moist and tender and yummy !! You don't need to cook pork to death as we have believed in the past ! And pork is good for you."
"i made this for my husband and i was surprised at how quick and delish it was!! he ate every bite!! i added a little more red wine and let it thicken up with the pork so it soaked up the flavor!"
