1/3 Photos of Monday Night Pork Tenderloin
1 hr 20 mins
My sister and I cook dinner for a group of want-a-be race car drivers that meet in the Man Cave every Monday night. This is one of their favorite meals that we fix. It is simple to make and is just down right good eating. It makes its own gravy that is great over rice or mashed potatoes. Hope you enjoy.
