this was devine!! i used a peppercorn marinated pork tenderloin. i coated that with a mixture of peppercorns, garlic powder, and salt. i drizzled the meat with brandy, and then roasted in the oven for 40 minutes until meat was 160 degrees. i doubled the sauce and cooked on the stove. poured sauce over sliced tenderloin and roasted garlic mashed potatoes!! yummy!! will make often... thanks for this delish keeper, jan!

What a wonderful combination of flavors.When the tenderloin was done at 140* I removed it from the pan to rest. I then reduced the sauce till it was a bit thicker.My family enjoy this very much

We all loved this recipe even the 4 year old although I kept the pepper off hers since she doesn't LIKE black pepper but she loved the sauce. I used spiced rum as no brandy and subbed the whipping cream with evaporated milk. We had to really stir up the sauce as it separated quite a bit perhaps because it wasn't whipping cream?? But gotta use what's in the pantry - rural living puts the damper into running out for one ingredient. Thanks for great recipe - the pork was wonderful.
