I tied 2 small pork tenderloin together. And 6 minutes at 500 F. Then waiting near 1:15 before opening the oven door. It's tender and perfect. Thanks Vicki :) Made for Holiday tag

The flavor for this tenderloin is :yummy: We have pork tenderloin a few times a month and so I"m always looking for variations to flavor. I was able to utilize your cooking technique because of time allowances and so put it in the crockpot for 5 hours on high. So moist and tender. Threw a few Idaho potatoes on top and the fam was good to go!! Thanks Vicki for sharing your recipe. Made for AU recipeswap-April~

Perfect, just made this for our New Year's Dinner! I actually used half of a 7lb pork tenderloin, basted in our favorite barbeque sauce, cooked it for 21 min. for the 3 1/2 lb. portion, and didn't peek for an hour..just through the oven window :) The other half I cooked in the crock pot for 6 hours with home made sauerkraut. Hope this meal brings us a year of good luck!
