Reviews for Tenderloin with Herb Sauce
"I LOVE this recipe. I make it often. Yes, it is very fast and easy to make. I omit the salt the recipe calls for because it is salty enough with the other ingredients. I cooked Apricot-Glazed Green Beans (from this website) as a side dish tonight. Excellent combo."
"This was a delicious fast meal. It only takes minutes to cook. I used almond milk instead of half and half but I forgot the red pepper flakes...still delicious. We just returned from the South of France where we bought herbs de Provence so this gave me a chance to use these delicious herbs. Would definitely make again...but would omit the salt...with the soy sauce and the beef boullion it was a bit salty."
"Everyone just ate it up! Really a lovely dinner. We served it with stuffing and sauteed asparagus."
"Yum, we really enjoyed this recipe. I did modify a little. I replaced the half and half cream with fat free evaporated milk. I also cooked the pork in 2 teaspoons butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. I think that this would make a great dinner party dish."
"very delicious. I usually like hot food but would not add 3/4 again, would go with 1/2. my herbs did not have lavender in it, so I added some from the health food store. served with rosemary,garlic, olive oil and hot paprika. also zuccini and mushroom saute. wonerful combo!"
"I used chops as well. Adults enjoyed it, kids didn't. Recipe doesn't suggest to drain drippings from pan after cooking pork but that is definitely something I would do next time."
