    This is an awesome recipe! Our pork tenderloin was 1.5 lbs so I increased the seasoning by .5 of everything. This may be the best pork tenderloin we have made so far. So yummy and filling! We were also able to use the leftover pork in wraps that we made with arugula, tzatziki sauce, and feta. Awesome! If you like pork you should try it!

    Very good. Subbed drained diced tomato for raw (no good fresh tomatoes around here til summer). Along with onion, added 1 small carrot & 1 stalk celery each finely diced. Excellent results, nice pairing of the peppery beans & sweet-ish pork..

    I loved this dish, as did my family. Used fresh herbs, garlic, and tomatoes. The only canned items were the beans and chicken broth. As someone else said, the crushed fennel seeds added to the taste and the aroma of the dish. Ate this with the wilted spinach.

    This was easy to make and tasted great. The pork was nicely seasoned and it went well with the beans and tomatoes.

    As other reviews stated, fantastic and easy also, very filling! Although, next time I'll double the bean mixture (which was as delicious as the pork) there just wasn't enough of it (specially when folks go back for seconds). Served with CL Mixed Green Salad (April 2012).

    Was surprised at how spicy this turned out, but it was still very good! I used canned tomatoes in place of fresh, but otherwise followed the recipe. Husband liked it enough for me to add it to the "keep" binder of recipes. And the 1 year old baby loved it despite the spiciness!

    Made this for a family of 4 ( 2kids ). I did double the bean portion, but would probably leave out the red pepper flakes next time. Between pepper and red pepper flakes, came out way too spicy ( I normally enjoy spicy) and overpowered the flavor of all the other ingredients. We like our pork with no pink, but still juicy, so I cooked for 20min. In oven and rested for 5. It came out perfect!

    We loved this recipe - it's quick and delicious and the perfect comfort food! I used fresh rosemary and sage from my backyard and followed the recipe exactly. The beans were so good (really good!) that I plan to double them next time. I served it with a salad of romaine, grape tomatoes, red onion, croutons and a simple, homemade vinaigrette. My husband was thrilled with this recipe and its American flavors. I'd just subjected him to salmon spiced with garam masala the night before and a spinach tofu panang curry the night before that. He hates Indian food, salmon and tofu, so he was over the moon with this dish.

    This was fantastic. I made it exactly as the recipe states and the pork was super moist. I even reheated some leftovers the next day and it was just as moist,if not better. Plan on making this again tonite. Super easy & great flavor!

    Surprised that I am the first reviewer! Must admit, I was skeptical of the crushed fennel seeds at first, but it added a great deal of flavor and makes the dish!

    Loved how easy, cheap and yummy this recipe is. I did swap out a can of vegetarian white beans in tomato sauce in place of the cannellini beans and fresh tomatoes. I, like the previous reviewer, was a bit leery of how the fennel would taste in the dish-but ended up really enjoying it.
