Mushroom Pork Tenderloin

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

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

I always run to the store whenever pork tenderloin goes on sale. It’s the pork equivalent of filet mignon.
