    HEP MEP's Note:

    I am NOT a big pork fan, but I do like pork tenderloin - it's "the other white meat" very low in fat content (hate fatty meats!) The rosemary makes this absolutely heavenly. Got it out of my old Good Housekeeping cookbook. (my newlywed bible)I like to make my twice-baked potatoes with this,and some broccoli or asparagus(when it's cheap)

      This recipe was great for something so simple! My husband is always whining for fried pork chops, but like you, I don't care for fatty meats, either. This is the perfect alternative - fried flavor but a lean tenderloin! I made this recipe exactly as posted (and used extra rosemary, too - great taste!). Served with creamed potatoes and steamed snap peas. Thanks, Mary Ellen!!

      We always have pork loin in the house and I was looking for something different to make.... this was out of this world! The only thing I did different was add a little parmesean cheese to the bread crumbs. Fantastic recipe MEP!

      Holy cow, I was craving comfort food and I found it here! Absolutely awesome, you could cut this with a butter knife it was so tender! I used italian seasoned breadcrumbs, subbed season salt for the plain salt, and up the rosemary! Served it along side OzMarthas Noodles Romanoff and sugar snap peas, and I was transported to the comfort zone! Thanks for the incredible recipe! It couldn't be easier or tastier!
