Pork Tenderloin with Glazed Red Onion

This colorful entree has been a longtime family favorite. I pair it with rice pilaf or orzo to complement the thyme in the pork and the balsamic vinegar in the onions. —Patricia Schmidt of Sterling Heights, Michigan

    My husband and I loved this easy to make dish. With just the two of us, we were able to get several meals out of it and each was as tasty as the last.

    Great meal. I take as a "Meals on Wheels" to sick friends and it's always a hit.
