We love this dish! I can't bring myself to make pork tenderloin any other way. I make mashed potatoes on the side to go with the gravy. Delicious! I bet it would be good with skinless boneless chicken breasts as well. Thank you for posting my favorite pork recipe.

Can't believe I am rating something made with canned soup but this is excellent. Had company staying with us and needed another idea for dinner (that was easy) and this fit the bill. I did add about 1/4 cup dry white wine to the sauce, but then I add wine to most dishes. Thanks again for submitting such an easy and tasty recipe.

This recipe really is delicious. I used Onion Mushroom soup mix instead which turned out perfect. I used just a dash of Kosher salt instead of 1/2 tsp. You just need enough flour to coat the pork, which was less than a cup for me and I used one pork tenderloin. I used whole wheat flour. When it was done and out of the oven, I sliced it right away in the skillet, then stirred it around to get the sauce smothered throughout. The sauce is thin at first, but as you let it sit out for about 10 minutes, it will naturally thicken. I served this meal with Roasted Potatoes and Baby Carrots With Garlic (also from this website). I'll write a review for that one too. Delicious meal. Enjoy!
