This meal is your ticket to a quaint bistro in the countryside of France. A creamy demi-glace sauce studded with shallots and briny green peppercorns accent tender pork perfectly. Savory mashed carrots and roasted asparagus provide hearty and delicious sides.
Absolutely fantastic. Tenderloin was juicy and the sauce was superb!
Love this recipe! I can't believe I got my husband to eat so many veggies!!
I've never thought to mash carrots. It's a much more enjoyable way to eat them...The tenderloin was out of this world!!!!!
Are there extra stars to be given for a dish? This one deserves it! I am just crying over how wonderful this dish was! Holy moly, this came out of my own kitchen! THIS DISH was Oh-My-Goodness-Great!
Amazing flavor in everything! Roast was moist & tender. The butter "made" the carrots! Loved the asparagus, it was tender & tasty! The peppercorn sauce had a wonderful flavor!! Yum!! This was a winner, even for my picky son! Thanks Home Chef!
