Wine and mushrooms lend elegance to this oh-so-simple pork dish. Use pre-sliced mushrooms and minced garlic to save time. Cleanup is one-pan easy. —Kim Gillis, High Falls, New York

"My husband made this for one of our Saturday night dinners. I loved it, and so did he. We made one small change...we used pork tenderloin because that's what we had. Thanks for posting, Kim."

"Loved the turkey bacon in it - wonderful smell, wonderful taste, have put it in my recipe box. I used chicken broth instead of wine. I used extra olive oil when I was preparing the mushrooms, onions and bacon. Every once in awhile I sniff the wonderful smell that it left in my kitchen. Will definitely make it again."

"My boyfreind and I loved!!! this recipe. I bought 8 thin sliced chops. I'm all for healthy, but used regular flour instead. I did though spend the money on the turkey bacon and crisped that up in the microwave first. perfect! I bought the marsala wine at my local grocery store which was a dry & sweet combo. Definitely saving it to my recipe box*****"

"Recipe does not state which wine....................dry or sweet? This makes me burning mad. I go get all ingredients and then find out at the liquor store there are both kinds! C'mon Taste of Home you should know better!"
