    Used boneless pork loin chops and didn't pound them out. Cooked for just a couple minutes longer than called for to allow for the extra thickness. Also, substituted sugar-free strawberry jam for the raspberry. (I'm diabetic and have to watch my sugar intake.) These were DELICIOUS and so easy. A company worthy dish in less than 30 minutes!

    The sauce is great, but I would never pound or flatten a pork tenderloin as it takes away from the flavor and the tenderness.

    This has become one of our favorite pork tenderloin dishes. It is so good. Always look forward to making it, it never fails!

    Sauce is VERY sweet using a full half cup of jam. Next time I'll reduce the amount of jam to less than a half cup. Otherwise, very tasty

    I agree that it is restaurant quality. I think you could use and kind of preserves. I used Cherry.
