"I used a small pork loin roast. Butterflied it, but next time would make medallions (is what I ended up doing to make sure done). Used all the thyme mixture to coat the pork. Seared it in the pan and added the onions as soon as all sides were seared. Doubled the amount of the sauce as we like a lot of sauce. Added maybe a 1/2 cup of pinot grigio to deglaze the pan, then added the mushrooms. Let it cook down before adding the milk mixture. I did add some extra thyme to the onion/mushroom mixture. (I used french thyme). Remember thta pork can be served medium rare to rare. DON'T OVERCOOK or pork does get rubbery and dray. Served with garlic parmesan mashed potatoes. Will fix again."
