    This is a totally awesome recipe! I used Warre’s Optima10 Tawny Port for the sauce; served with Pasta, tomato salad( with basil, capers, red onions , balsamic and EVO ) and French Beans... BIG hit and so easy.... lovely Sunday night dinner.

    Very easy to make and was a hit by all. Pork stayed tender and juicy and the sauce was a flavorful addition to help set the tone for the whole meal.

    This was fabulous!!! I usually over cook the pork tenderloins but these came out tender and juicy. The sauce was the greatest topper for the meat. I will definitely make this again!!!!
