From Food and Drink magazine. I have finally had the opportunity to try this after having clipped it ages ago. IT IS AMAZING! This is now our new favourite recipe! I was able to use a very very good quality REAL maple syrup which really added to the flavour. I am sure you'll enjoy this.

Amazing. Super pork recipe - nice and moist with a good crust. I placed a wire rack over the baking sheet so that the bottom would crisp up as well. The OMG part kicks in with that sauce. I used one tenderloin for the two of us but made the full amount of sauce. So glad that I did. I used about half - I know that should have been for four people but I could honestly eat that sauce with a spoon. Happy to have some frozen now. Thanks for sharing this beauty!<br/><br/>I have made this a couple of times now and love it just as much as the first time. I routinely make at least the full amount of sauce (sometimes double it) as I have discovered that it is wonderful with both ham and chicken! Great to have in 4 ounce containers to elevate a weekday meal.

I give this 4 stars for the sauce and 5 stars for the tenderloin; we were not too thrilled with the sauce which was a surprise reading the other reviews. I made exactly as stated and with real maple syrup. The tenderloin was moist and flavourful; the crust came off the bottom when I moved it to a cutting board. But still delicious.

Great recipe for a birthday dinner. I tented the pork which I shouldn't have done because the crust became soft. It was delicious nonetheless. The sauce was indeed a hit.
