I'm not seeing the oven temperature anywhere. Seems like a pretty important detail to leave out.

This was made for PAC Spring 2009 and is a recipe I will definitely make again. I did not follow the cooking instructions I must admit as the weatehr was so good that we decided to bar-b-q instead. I made the sauce as instructed and marinated my tenderloin for 45 minutes. Then seared it on the bar-b, and finished it off by cooking over indirect heat! My husband loved it - we are having the leftover in stir fry tonight! Very excellent!
