"This was super quick and very tasty. I did add about 2 extra cloves of garlic because...well I like the stuff!! I cut the pork loin super thin so I didn't have to "flatten" was just about 3 minutes each side and it was wonderful. The cream sauce thickens a lot next time I may add a bit more milk to thin it a little bit...but there will be a next time!"

"This was delicious, fast and simple! I used light herb and garlic cream cheese and doubled the sauce recipe to serve with rice. I pan fried the pork tenderloin slices instead of broiling. Very popular!"
