My family enjoyed this. I didn't have carrots, so I skipped that part. I browned pounded medallions, seasoned with a bit of black pepper. Based on other reviews, I doubled the sauce ingredients. I didn't have bouillon granules, so I softened two bouillon cubes with a touch of boiling water. I substituted 2 T of homemade Italian seasoning for the basil and parsley. (I don't care for the taste of dried parsley.) If I had fresh basil and parsley, I might have used them instead. I was tempted to add dried rosemary and minced garlic, but these flavors were already in the Italian mix. I used 4 tsp flour and 1 tsp black pepper with the herbs. I stirred in my bouillon mixture and 1/4 c wine (wasn't sure if we would care for it doubled). This made a thick mixture which I added to the warmed 1 1/3 c cream. Actually, I only had about 1/2 cup cream and used 1% milk for the rest. I added the pork back in and simmered for about 15 minutes. I would definitely recommend doubling the sauce ingredients to the quantities I used. I actually added in a touch more milk as the sauce got a little too thick.
It sounds like I made a lot of changes, but really I just had to accommodate what I had on hand. This was easy to make - even the first time. I would definitely make it again for my family. I think there is plenty of opportunity to adjust the sauce flavors if you want. I would have loved a touch of Dijon, but my daughter would not have eaten it.
