You're right , this is a lovely recipe, so tender and moist with a delightfully spicy hot coat. Delicious! There are just two of us so I just did one tenderloin a little over a pound. Served with steamed cabbage,carrot and red onion. I will be making this one again, thanks for posting!
A nice flavor change from traditional pork roasts. The coating sealed in a tender roast, which imparted a spicy after-taste. I'm not sure I'd use the pan drippings to make gravy again though--that too came out quite spicy--maybe just a little too much. It overwhelmed the poor mashed potatoes. An easy problem to correct.
Very good! My pork roast was 2.75 pounds so I cooked an extra 15 minutes. I doubled the red pepper flakes. Thanks for posting skinnyminnie.
