Pork Tenderloin with Wine Sauce

Here’s a fast and easy, great-tasting meal that's as big on flavor as it is low in fat and calories. I serve it with fresh green beans and mashed potatoes. —Nancy LaVoice, Wexford, Pennsylvania

    Good basic recipe. Would cook less to be more tender.

    To let rvgal237 know.....a pork tenderloin is completely different than the pork loin she used..The tenderloin is a much more tender cut of meat. That said, I made this several nights ago and it is delicious and so easy to prepare. I served it with fresh green beans, wild rice and a side salad. It made a wonderful meal.

    I have made this several times and it is wonderful. I buy a one pound pork poin for $7.99...cut it into 2" slices (I get about 8 slices). I brown them for 3 minutes per side, remove them from the pan, then make the gravy using the wine, etc....then return the pork to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes. The pork is perfect and moist and tender and yummy !! You don't need to cook pork to death as we have believed in the past ! And pork is good for you.

    i made this for my husband and i was surprised at how quick and delish it was!! he ate every bite!! i added a little more red wine and let it thicken up with the pork so it soaked up the flavor!
