          This is simply the result of being lazy... And avoiding an extra pan.  I was quite happy with the results and have added it to the cookbook.  Pork tenderloin cooks very fast when sliced and stays much more tender than chops.

   Sliced pork tenderloin and Brussels sprouts cooked together in a brown sugar and hot mustard sauce.  Serve over brown rice for a healthy, one-dish dinner.
