This makes a superbly tender loin. Have also used recipe with venison loin and the results are excellent. When I use a venison loin, I marinate in salt water, beer or other marinade for several hours to remove wild game taste and use meat tenderizer before cooking.

This was very easy to make. The sauce had a nice rich taste to it. I used the chicken broth to make mine. The blush wine worked nicely as it did not over power the other ingredients. So glad I opened a new bottle and did not use the burgundy that was opened. Thank you for sharing.

This recipe originated with Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet, many years ago & appears in his FG Cooks With Wine cookbook. Only difference is the use of white wine instead of the blush used here. Have been making this for years & have had many comments that this is the tenderest pork ever tasted. I use a small pork roast, not pork tenderloin & it almost falls to pieces. I think it rather than slice it & put the chunks directly I'm the wine sauce. Often serve with long grain & wild rice. Yummm!

This is a very good recipe, and it earned compliments from two skeptical teenage sons. Next time, I may follow the suggestions to rub the roast prior to browning. I served this with noodles, but I agree that the sauce would go well with garlic-herb mashed potatoes.
