“I am NOT a big pork fan, but I do like pork tenderloin - it's "the other white meat" very low in fat content (hate fatty meats!) The rosemary makes this absolutely heavenly. Got it out of my old Good Housekeeping cookbook. (my newlywed bible)I like to make my twice-baked potatoes with this,and some broccoli or asparagus(when it's cheap)”
