Well Dorothy, you haven't let me down with any of your recipes and this one is no exception, Lovely blend of flavors, moist meat and all round excellent recipe. I followed the ingredients to a T and also the steps, For this recipe I think it is very important to follow the steps exactly. Nice work Dorothy & good luck in the contest.
Oh my God Dorothy Parks this was sooo good! The tenderloin stayed nice and tender, and I loved the addition of parmessan slices, not shredded! This is definately a meal that you can serve to guests for a fancy dinner party! Just loved that the shaved cheese "melted" over the broccoli! You have definately come up with a winner!
I was all set to love this dish based on the description and the reviews, but I'm sorry to say that it fell flat. I followed the directions to the letter and was disappointed in the outcome. The cilantro,which I LOVE, was lost in the rest of the sauce. I didn't get the creamy results from the parmesan cheese either. I will try my own variation the next time I make a pork tenderloin.
