I honestly wasn't excited to try this recipe.  A friend suggested it and after some consistent prodding, I finally caved and decided to give it a try even though my husband isn't the biggest fan of pork tenderloin or peppers.  I had mentally prepared myself for him to reach for a bowl of cereal within 10 minutes of dinner starting, but couldn't have been more shocked at his reaction.  We both loved it. 

The combination of the sweet onion, bell peppers, garlic, and pepperoncinis add a ton flavor to the dish with just a hint of spice.  The pork stays nice and tender since it cooks in chicken broth and the simple pan sauce brings everything together for one delicious meal.  If you prefer not to eat pork, this recipe works great with chicken breast or chicken thighs as well.  Sometimes I also add some fresh rosemary, thyme, or oregano if I have it on hand. 

Looking for a complete meal?  Serve it with creamy polenta, zucchini couscous, cauliflower and carrot rice, or creamy ricotta spaghetti squash.
