This was delicious. Following the advice of reviewers on the cooking light website, I cut the breadcrumbs down to 1 cup (I also used panko) and I still had more than enough to coat two 1lb tenderloins. The conserve is amazing. It was so good and I agree with DDW that it could be used for many other recipes...or even just spread on toast, it is that good.

Great recipe. I used panko crumbs as you did and used 1 large egg instead of 2 egg whites. The conserve is really yummy and could be used easily in other recipes or maybe a topping for brie. This came together quickly and the whole family enjoyed it!

Redsie ~ Thanks so much for this recipe! It is great! I used coarse breadcrumbs I made myself from a whole grain winter wheat bread, & then I followed the recipe exactly, using the strawberry jam! The result was OUTSTANDING, & the pork with the wonderful conserve was great! Again, many thanks ~ You've got a winner here!
