An outstanding recipe packed with flavor. I followed Pumpkie and cooked a 1 pound tenderloin at 475 degrees for the time specified. It was perfectly cooked, tender and moist. This was served with brown rice and sauteed green beans. Thanks Marie for a wonderful meal.
I didn't have time to marinate so gave this recipe a try. It was quick to prepare and very tasty. Lined the pan as suggested, Cooked a little longer than 20 min, but that is to your liking. Certainly a do again.
This was my first try making pork tenderloin, and it turned out fantastic! We love garlic and balsamic vinegar, so this was a great choice. I don't know that I will ever be able to bring myself to try any other tenderloin recipe. Thanks!
