    I changed it. Added some balsamic reduction and a bit of cane sugar to the simmered onion wine mix. It over cooked in oven in 20 minutes, maybe 15 would be right as it rests and cooks more. The package of gravy should be mixed with a bit of cold water first. It had clumps so I had to strain and probably all the flavour from the gravy was not in the sauce. I will try again and mix the gravy with a bit of cold water first and way less cooking time.

    This was a really great dinner. You added some beef broth in addition to the wine to make a little more gravy because the 2 pork tenderloins I had were really big. I also doubled the onions. Great meal that everyone liked. Will definitely make again. Oh and that’s the first time I’ve ever used a brown gravy mix (I usually make my own) and it was really easy and good.

    Excellent , I only used about three quarters of the wine and added beef stock to sub the remaining wine . Also reduced the wine before adding the stock was Delish

    Amazing! I used chicken broth instead of wine and it was so delicious. The only problem was that my husband doesn't really eat pork, but he surely ate it tonight. 😋

    First time roasting pork loin at low temperature. A discovery! Meat was tender and succulent!. Served with a potato croquette to soak up sauce. Yum!

    My family gave it all thumbs up! We added carrots and celery as we baked it and they loved the somewhat crunchy veggies with the delicious meal! OMG, my Fiancé was not to happy that I grabbed a full bottle of red from her....until she tasted it on the meat! Wonderful meal, thanks for the recipe!

    Unless you LOVE red wine... don’t make this. made it last night and we took off the onions and sauce. Might be better with a white wine. Red is just too strong.

    Delicious!! Made only two changes: 1. My local grocery store didn’t have white onions so I used yellow. I’d try it next time with white but honestly it was still delicious with yellow. 2. A typical bottle of wine is 750ml. I used less than 500ml. There was still enough sauce but I got an extra glass out of the bottle 😉 My whole family loved this. Served it with mashed potatoes and bread. Can’t wait to make it again! Excellent autumn or winter dish though it’s currently June and I don’t plan on waiting before putting this back on the menu!

    Delicious! I used Au Jus instead of gravy as I did not want a heavy sauce. Hubby loved it and leftovers were just as good.

    Could definitely taste the wine! Would add more onions, you can never have enough. I sauteed mine in butter.

    Turned out great! I used half bottle of wine as well. It made enough sauce but not enough for bread dipping.
