Pork Tenderloin Cutlets With Cranberry Maple Sauce

    I used loin chops and pounded them down, followed the rest of the recipe and really loved the sauce. I always use aged balsamic, which is very sweet, so we needed to use a little more maple syrup when tasting. Will definitely do this one again.

    This is the most wonderful recipe. The pork comes out melt in your mouth tender and so juicy. I had to use a lot of discipline not to go for more. I have to tell you that if I hadn't already picked my top two for the ZWT4 this one would have been fighting for one of those places. I chose to cook the tenderloin as a whole and then cut it up to serve. I think it helped to keep it so juicy. I put it in a casserole and poured the onions and juice over top and baked at 375F for about 30 minutes (no lid). Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe.

    I cranked this dish out & we gobbled it up fast!!! Next time, I'll use more maple syrup because I really couldn't taste it well enough. This is an easy, fast & delicious dish - thank you!!

    I used the thin cut, boneless pork chops and did not pound them. The sauce was very good with the pork chops, perfect amount of sweet from the syrup and tart from the cranberries! We enjoyed these pork chops a quick and easy meal.
