Awesome recipe! So easy and fast to make - my first success with tenderloin. Next time I will make it without the added sugar as I felt it did not need to be quite as sweet. Can't wait to try this again!
This was such a nice change from the usual pork! We really enjoyed it & how easy it was to make. I didn't have seedless blackberry spread, but I did have leftover Blackberry-Raspberry Sauce made with fresh berries. I had DS push the sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds & then it worked like a charm for this recipe. I also left out the cinnamon, as my family just never likes it in savory dishes, and made up for it with a little extra red pepper flakes. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing, alijen! :)
Yum, this was really good! I made it with some blackberry jelly that someone had given us as a gift, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't sugar free, but I did use the Splenda. It was yummy!
