  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, cut from the tip
  • 2 1/4 cups dry white wine

    I made this for a party tonight with some parsnip/carrot mash and it was lovely! The potatoes tasted great cooked in wine! Could have used a bit more salt, however.

    This is one of my favorite recipes for pork. It infuses the normally tasteless American pork with the delicious flavors of the wine. The vegetables come out perfectly and the flavors are balanced. I recommend this highly.

    this is delicious but I cooked it longer as we do not like "pink" pork. We like it well done!
