READY IN: 40mins

This is posted for a request, but it's a recipe i've made often. The glaze really makes the finished dish. Prep time doesn't include marinating and resting the meat. This is good served hot or cold, and leftovers are great in sandwiches.

I've had a craving for Chinese food but with SARS being such a problem in Ontario I just don't dare go to a Chinese restaurant. So we did the next best thing - cooked our own!! I used tenderloin & next time I will probably brush the marinade on the pork as I found the flavour a little overpowering. Thanx Jan!
