    As a rule, I don't rate anything, but this dish is sooooooo bad that I had to write in and save other people from wasting good ingredients. I followed this recipe exactly (something else I never do), and even browned the meat in batches so it would not be gray. The pork was still tasteless, the sauce horrific, and this recipe has no reedeeming characteristic. P.S. I am a pretty good cook, and have been successfully making online recipes every week for years. <br/><br/>Sorry yooper and Gidget.

    This was very good. I didn't have lemons so I added extra lemon juice. I liked this because it was low carb but still sweet.

    Delightful! Served mine with flour tortillas, [we had had plenty of rice, pasta and potato dishes this week]. We will surely have this again. Didn't have any white wine, so I left it out and increased broth. I doubt it made much difference.

    Excellent! We had taken (what we thought was)a shoulder of veneson out last evening for our dinner tonight. When we unwrapped it, we found it to be a 4 lb. pork leg roast. I went immediately on line, found your page, and this recipe. Pork tenderloin is expensive. This worked well, thought we did need to cook it for 1 1/2 hours to get it tender. Also, we added 2 C tomatoes and 2 ontion. Will definately do it again!

    Definite 5 stars for flavor!!! I might try baking covered in the oven instead of simmering as mine came out a bit tough. I thickened the broth with a bit of cornstarch, and also added a bit more stock so it would be saucier. Served it with parslied egg noodles and sliced avacado and we devoured it all!
