Delish! Easy and yummy!!! I didn't want a cream sauce but I wanted something that would bring out the pork and mushrooms...this delivered!!! Might add a tad more balsamic and a little less stock next time :)

Made this for dinner last night & it is fabulous. I added rosemary & sage to Step 2. The meat was tender & had a great taste. I served with brown & wild rice mixture. It was also easy to do. I will definitely make this one again.
