Better than expected

I have to say I was a little put off by some of the reviews, but I thought this was delicious. Maybe some of the other reviewers were using too much brandy, or didn't let it evaporate enough? Anyway, great meal.

Good, not great

This is really easy to make, and feel really fancy. However, I've made this twice and I think the brandy flavor is just a little overpowering in the sauce. Some of these reviews are suggesting white wine, perhaps I'll give this a try next time.

easy to make, pork is delicious

Perhaps this would have been good if I would have substituted white wine instead of brandy. Really strong brandy flavor, but the process was a lot of fun..

I tried it tonight with red wine because I did not have any brandy on hand. It was really delicious, but the sauce was a very strange plum/pink color. It looked a little weird!
