It was absolute torture waiting for this pork tenderloin to finish cooking. The aroma that filled the house was fantastic and I knew this was going to be good. I wasn't disappointed! Moist and tender with just the right mix of spices. I could go on and on about this was that good. I served this with mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, mustard, and yeast rolls. I know this is one recipe I'll make often. Thanks Inez for posting this wonderful recipe!

This tenderloin came out so yummy and juicy. Although everyone complained about the "pineneedles" (rosemary) I loved it. I also like Rosemary a lot. Instead of letting it sit for the ten minutes it suggested, the rest of dinner was running late and I had to have it sit covered on the counter for nearly 40 minutes, yet it still was juicy and wonderful tasting.

I certainly agree - the kitchen smelled heavenly, the roast was moist, tender & very tasty. Since I don't like the rosemary prickles, I substituted with 1/4 tsp of sage. I'm going to make this for my next dinner party!
