Pork Tenderloin With Balsamic-Cranberry Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by Lorac

The flavor of browned and roasted pork with fresh rosemary, cranberry and balsamic vinegar are combined by Mean Chef to produce a wonderfully thick dense sauce. The whole cranberry and onions added texture. The layering of flavors was so well balanced that no one ingredient domminated the rest. A very easy to make main dish.
