ode to grandma marion

i'm going to get a ton of flack for this, i already know. posting something not related to grilling on a 95 degree day. ugh. sorry. it's coming soon, i promise. lots of great summer recipes on the horizon. stay tuned.
in the meantime let's talk about my grandma marion holcomb. she's a kind soul that you'd love to lunch with. she's cooked a full meal every night since i can remember. all suppers include a side of vegetables, side of fruit and a loaf of italian bread. her specialty is spaghetti and meatballs which will come later. this is a must-try recipe straight from her kitchen.

pork tenderloin with mushrooms

2, 1 lb pork tenderloins
3 tbl butter
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 c mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c celery, sliced
2 tbl flour
1/2 c chicken broth

1. brown tenderloins in butter in a skillet. put into a baking dish. saute onion, mushrooms and celery in pan drippings until tender.
2. combine flour and broth until smooth and add to pan. bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. pour over meat.
3. cover pork and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. let stand five minutes before slicing.
