Mushroom Pork Tenderloin

I was hankerin’ for some comfort food. Something that cooks slow all day, filling the house with a delicious aroma.

Mushroom Pork TenderloinThis mushroom pork tenderloin was it. You know when you’ve hit the spot when all you hear are moans of delight when everyone starts eating. No one says¬† a word. Perfect! I could sit down and eat a bowl of the mushroom gravy by itself, actually.

We served this with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Also try my crazy-yummy pork medallions in mushroom Marsala sauce.
