    Easy to make, delicious. My husband thought I spent much more time on this than it actually took. I served with creamy polenta and some green beans. Definitely a guest worthy meal.

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was amazing! I modified the recipe a little by adding chopped fresh rosemary to the pork loin and it was a nice addition. Will make this recipe again really soon.

    Very good and very easy. Served with sauteed spinach with garlic (the mushroom sauce is so good on the spinach). Also served Truffled Mac and Cheese from the same issue.

    Very good and pretty easy to make. I would definitely make it again.

    I made this for dinner the other night with the suggested polenta (or yellow grits; same thing) and sauteed garlic n' spinach (as 'kiall1' did) and thought it was just OK, nothing special. However, I took it for lunch the next day and I guess the flavors married overnight, because it was much more tastier than the night before.

    This was a quick & easy main dish that we really enjoyed. The sauce & mushrooms added a lot to the pork. Nothing super special but I will be making it again.

    Not a bad recipe, but it didn't knock my socks off. Grits is definitely a good addition.

    This was delish. I doubled the recipe and made it for dinner when my 15 year old had a friend sleep over. Everyone loved it. I used sour cream in place of the creme fraiche and red wine vinegar instead of the white. I served it with steamed jasmine rice (wonderful to soak up the sauce) and haricort verts. Will definitely add this to our regular rotation.

    This was excellent! The sauce was really tasty, would be good on other meats as well. We found that we needed to cook the pork for 45 minutes in order for it to be done.

    I think this is really a very basic recipe but the addition of the creme fraiche and the mushrooms takes it up a notch. My pork needed about 35 min to cook and was still a little less done than I like, but to DH's satisfaction. Added more mustard to the sauce and used tarragon vinegar and a tad more dried tarragon when cooking down the 'shrooms. Served with brown rice and steamed broccoli. Would make for company if I knew they liked mushrooms and would probably add more color to the plate by using grits or polenta instead of the brown rice. Would make again.

    Really enjoyed this recipe. I had ingredients on hand(used sour cream instead of creme fraiche). Sauce has the feeling of a special occasion. Served with Gouda cheese grits and steamed broccoli. Will be serving again. The only change I made was to cook a little longer as I prefer my pork a little more done.

    I made this for my husband and I and it was better than it sounded - SO good!! I made the full recipe for the 2 of us but had a smaller tenderloin (about 12-ounces) that we didn't finish. I did add about 1/2 cup sliced onions to the sauce and it was a nice addition. I served it with Roasted Parsnips, Tomatoes, Scallions and baby red potatoes for a great Friday night dinner.

    I made the sauce out of order of what the directions said, but it still turned out quite tasty. The fact that this is a Cooking Light recipe confirmed my thought that preparing the sauce incorrectly still produced excellent results. Note: Do not have your pets in the kitchen to distract you while preparing any meal. The end result might not be what it should be. ;-P

    My boyfriend and I thought this was great! I am even making it for the family for Christmas dinner this year (small gathering). Very very yummy - I followed the recipe completely.

    Excellent! Even my picky husband asked for seconds.....and the dog got no leftovers tonight! I used sour cream and canned mushrooms. I used a little over 2 pounds of tenderloin, and I cooked it a little over an hour. It seemed too salty for us, so I will eliminate the salt in the sauce next time. Definitely a keeper!

    I loved this recipe. I made several mistakes while cooking it but the recipe was robust enough that they didn't matter. In fact, possibly my mistakes contributed to how good it was. I accidentally used about 3.5 cups of beef stock instead of 1 cup of chicken stock, realizing I had switched my ingredients the moment I poured it into the pan. I let it reduce for a long while at a boil. This concentrated the flavors immensely and produced a rich, dark gravy. I also was so busy that I misread the timing of the pork and cooked it for 20 minutes on the first side rather than flipping halfway through. I only let it cook 8 minutes on the other. It had a lovely crisp exterior and thankfully did not dry out in the center. The gravy would have covered up that mistake nicely anyway. I will absolutely make this again. I served it with sautéed parsnips and kale.

    Fast & easy. Prepped to recipe using fat-free sour cream. Only change was to add parsley to the sauce just prior to serving rather than using as garnish. Served with wilted spinach & oven-roasted carrots. Easy Sunday dinner.

    This was a phenomenal recipe and a great one to have on hand for when you have guests over. It took more time to thoroughly cook the pork (~34 minutes), but it was because I was using a broiler pan rather than a roasting pan and did not preheat the pan prior because I forgot to. In the end, the pork came out perfectly tender and the mushroom sauce was amazing. I plan on adding some fresh thyme the next time I make this dish because I love the flavor combo of thyme and mushrooms.

    This was a great recipe. I used centre cut pork chops and lightly dusted them with porcini dust (I grind dried porcinis in my spice grinder). I also had to use yogurt instead of sour cream. Finally, I used a wild mushroom blend and shitake mushrooms.

    Yum! This was delicious! Even my kids asked for more! This is definitely going into the rotation.
