YUM. This is a future top 10 recipe I'm sure. The flavor combination is excellent. Loved the herb combination and the sauce is to die for. I could not find havarti cheese so I used swiss and used fresh orange juice in place of the concentrate (since I already had an orange for the zest) but other than that made as directed. I did have some technical problems as I guess I didn't get the roast tied tight enough and most of my cheese leaked out, but just scoped it up and put it on. Thanks so much Nick's Mom for a wonder and make again recipe. Did I say YUM?

OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING, what can I say! This is a really great recipe! I was going to make this for a dinner party, then endied up making it for from friends who are housebound for a couple of weeks. However, before taking it to them, I managed to keep a slice for myself, & I telll you, I definitely have to make this again! I did find the havarti cheese, so used that. When it came to the glaze, I added an additional Tbsp of orange zest as well as another 1/2 cup of dried cranberries! Everyone loved it, & so do I! Many thanks!

I made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. I used more oj concentrate instead of grand marnier. When I opened my package of tenderloins it was 2 pieces instead of one, so I butterflied each piece, stuffed them and tied the two pieces together.
