This is great served with rice pilaf and fresh green beans. For dessert I like to serve a huge slice of fresh peach pie topped with vanilla ice cream. (Talk about a great 4th of July feast--this is it).

This is a easy and wonderful recipe to make. It makes the tenderloin so juicy and flavorful. It's a meal I would make over and over. My husband justs loves it as well. I only make one at a time as there is only 2 of us.
