    I was in the mood for pork so I chose this and the first bite had me hooked! The meat was tender and the sauce was excellent!

    What a great addition to my pork tenderloin recipes. This is so vey tasty! The spinach-tomato topping was very attractive; I'll try this one on company next.. The pork itself was juicy and tender. I added just a bit of reserved bacon fat after reading the reviews, but it didn't need much. I'll definitely make this again. Made for Aussie #17.

    Absolutely gorgeous!! I changed this, but only slightly, reading other reviews, realised juices from pork was the meaty flavour. My loin was very lean so rendered nearly nothing, I added about 1/2 teaspoon beef granules. I grated about 4 tablespoons gruyere, parmesan mix, I had this on hand. I added half this to the sauce and sprinkled the rest over the top, apart from that made as is. Perfectly cooked pork, was so juicy and tender and we wolfed this one down. I will be making this again and again. So creative of you Alskann to come up with such a winner being restricted on ingredients. I know I altered slightly but I am sure it would have the same outstanding flavour if you got enough juices from pork and made with your listed cheese. I only changed the cheese as I had that in my fridge. A definite winner!!!

Those two little boys did an amazingly good job of hiking the steep trail (so did grandma!). Food is my passion. I love to cook, I love to read recipes, I have hundreds of cookbooks. My favorite cookbook is Recipezaar! Since I joined in 2002 it has become the first place I go when looking for a recipe. Cooking is what I do for fun. I love to travel! Not only do I get to see new places and meet interesting people - I get to try new food. My other passions are my grandkids!!!
