    I tweeked the recipe a little- used pork chops, and substituted brown sugar. I love the tangy/ sweet flavor. I also added sliced mushrooms before putting it in the oven. Two thumbs up from me and my husband. - 10/21/08

    Love it! I've made it twice so far. I add garlic powder also and baste it every 5 minutes. I slice it as soon as it's out of the oven and baste it again so that all of the pieces are covered in the juices. - 6/29/09

    Very good but needs to be cooked longer than 20 min. I used a meat thermometer and it probably needed to go about 30 min. I also used regular brown sugar instead of the splenda.

    This turned out great! I had 2.5 lbs of pork tenderloin, so I dbled the sauce. Added garlic powder before searing, and tossed sliced mushrooms and onion in before roasting.

    Very tasty. I used boneless pork chops instead of pork tenderloin. I made the mistake of cooking the chops for the length of time stated for the tenderloin instead of reducing the time. As a result, they came out a little dry. The next time I will reduce the frying time as well as the baking time. - 4/15/10

    Wonderfull flavor! Instructions are not clear what to do after browning. We just poured the balsamic sauce over the browned meat in the frying pan for one min and then transfered it all to a tin foil lined pan to bake for 20 min. The end result is a med-well done meat.
