Pork Marsala

Pork Marsala is a surprising simple to make dish that produces a result that is truly spectacular & tasty.

The pork tenderloin provides a juicy, tasty meat to underpin the dish.  The mushroom marsala sauce is what makes this dish so special.  The sauce is lovely mix of mushrooms, spring onion, butter, garlic and white wine.  These are simmered to an amazing flavour combination.  Finally, with cream and parsley mixed through, you have a truly special creamy sauce that turns a simple meal into a special occasion.

This dish can be prepared and cooked in 30-40 minutes, so when you are time poor, this is a great meal to make that your family will appreciate and make them think you have spent a lot of time making a special dinner.

Serve the pork marsala with pasta as I have done for this picture.  Alternately another popular choice is to serve over mashed potatoes which is also an amazing combination.  It does require more time and effort but is also worth the end result.
