1 (1 1/2 pound)
fat-trimmed pork tenderloin
salt and pepper to taste
all-purpose flour for dusting
1 (8 ounce) bottle
Russian-style salad dressing
1 (1 ounce) envelope
dry onion soup mix
This is an excellent recipe. The first time I made exactly as the recipe stated, however I have found it to be a little too sweet for my taste. Now whenever I make this, I reduce the amountof honey in half, add two tablespoons each of chilli sauce and balsamic vinegar and 1 cup of chicken broth. Makes a wonderful sauce.
Did not like the taste at all. I found the onion flavor overpowering along with the sweet taste a bit odd. I would never waste food, so I did eat it, but my whole family gave it the thumbs down. Sorry but this will not be on my list to ever make again.
Definitely a keeper. Made this for Easter Dinner yesterday and even my pickiest eaters loved it. Lots of leftover sauce (no pork though); my mom even wanted to take some of the sauce home and find some other meat to soak in it. Easy and delicious. I didn't make any changes to the recipe except that I browned the meat the day before and put it in it's baking dish covered overnight in the fridge. I also made the sauce the day before in a separate container and poured it over the meat just before putting it in the oven. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
The best tasting pork tenderloin I've ever had!!! My husband and I LOVED this recipe. So easy and yummy. I made the Russian Salad Dressing from scratch (got recipe from All Recipes). I also placed carrots and potatoes around the tenderloin and sprinkled some freshly chopped garlic on top of the veggies. A complete meal that was hard to stop eating.
I made this recipe in the slow cooker and let it simmer on low all day. (Approx. 10 hours) It was absolutely delicious. The aroma was wonderful and the meat was fork tender and juicy! The leftovers were used to make a yummy tortilla wrap!
This turned out great, my notoriously picky wife even liked this after I made it. I do use a little bit less honey than the recipe calls for. Also, once I forgot to pick up the honey , so substituted mayple syrup, and that came out great also.
This was really good. The pork turned out moist and very tender. I agree with other reviewers about cutting down on the honey. I used maple syrup because at the last minute I discovered I didn't have any honey. I cut that back to 1/2 a cup but I think 1/4 of a cup would be plenty using either honey or maple syrup. I found the sauce too sweet to be pouring over the meat once everything was on the dinner table. I will be making this again. I didn't have Russian Dressing so I made it following the recipe Chilled Russian Salad Dressing from this sight. Thanks for sharing.
This was absolutely delicious. My husband who isn't a big pork fan has already asked when we can have this again.
If I can get my KIDS 3&5 both loved this too and they don't eat meat!
For sure a WHOLE family favorite.
