Just cubed up some left over pork chops, didn't have mushrooms but would have been a tasty addition. Other than that followed the recipe and it was good!

Good pork stew. Prep takes a bit of time, but I kept adding veggies to the pot as I got them chopped, so cooking time after that was shortened a bit. Between the carrots, red pepper, and the caramelization of meat and veggies there was more colour than in the pic.I used additional onion, added a red bell pepper, and omitted the mushrooms, sugar, and sour cream.

Big hit! I did not have all ingredients and could not run out due to a blizzard the first time I made it. I didn't have chicken broth, but I did have beef base, so I followed the directions on the jar and actually ended up adding extra later because it boiled down so much. I also didn't have tarragon so I used three Bay Leaves instead. The pork tenderloin I had was apple bourbon so I didn't add the sugar. The next time I made it I used regular pork tenderloin, I used vegetable base instead of chicken broth, and I didn't add the sugar. I also doubled up on the milk and flour since I had extra liquid the second time. It was delicious both times!!

This is one of my go-to's when I want something out of the ordinary -- it's a really special, thick stew that is so satisfying on a snowy evening! And it's quick and easy!

First time to make this dish. I don't know why the broth and milk couldn't turn thick. Anyway ,I'll try again next time . Thanks for sharing the nice recipe!

I left the skin on the potatoes and halved the recipe since I only had 1 tenderloin, and that made just enough for one meal for 3 adults and 2 kids. I also left the meat in the whole time, so it was nice and tender. As another reviewer mentioned, all the liquid simmered off. I actually had to add a couple splashes of chicken broth in at the end so there was something to stir the milk thickener into! But it truly did turn out as a stew and not a soup as shown in the picture. Anyway, it was FABULOUS! So delicious. Even my finicky 7 year old daughter loved it. This recipe is definitely a keeper, and we'll be having it again for sure! I sprinkled a tiny bit of shredded lowfat cheddar on top when I served it with buttered honey wheat bread on the side. Wonderful! The tarragon gave it a nice, unique flavor that really complimented the pork well.UPDATE 01/31/15: I'm coming back to update this review, because I made this same recipe today in my electric pressure cooker. I just put all of the ingredients, completely raw, in my electric pressure cooker and set it on the soup/stew setting for 30 minutes. When it was done, I stirred in the sour cream before serving, and it was perfect! So much easier since you don't have to mess with the browning and sauteeing and thickening beforehand. I just mixed all the liquids and seasonings together and poured it over the top of the meat and veggies and turned it on. Yum!

I made this over 2 days out of convince. I actually cooked the pork tenderloin in my crockpot the day before and cut it up afterwards and placed in refrigerator until the next day. The rest I did the next day. I felt for my taste it needed more salt/pepper which I just added to taste during dinner. I also had to use a cup of milk and 4 Tlbs flour to have enough sauce. My husband had seconds!

So good! The second time I wanted to make it the store didn't have a pork tenderloin so I made it with pork chops instead. Still really yummy!

This is an easy-to-make stew with an outstanding taste. The pork is tender and falls apart in your mouth. I've made it many times and there are never any left-overs.
