I used this recipe for the 4th of July get together for 24 people. Course I have to increase this by 3rd's because I had about 12lbs. to get ready. This is the most fantastic recipe for port tenderloin it was moist and tender, the flavor was outstanding. Needless to say I didn't have any leftovers. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. It is a keeper in my house.

Excellent recipe. I marinated it for 2 days and the result was a very tender meal. The flavours combined very nicely. Next time I might cut back to 3/4 C soy sauce as for my personal preference I found it a little salty even though I used low salt soy sauce.

Excellent recipe. Easy to prepare and the finished dish was tender and delicious. I let the pork marinate for 2 1/2 days and broiled it in the oven. The marinade formed a tasty crust. Will do it again. For now, I have the similar pork recipe from Rodger (#31303) marinating in the fridge.
