This recipe is so fast & good! I usually serve it with mashed potatoes with chipotle and fresh asparagus.

I had a tenderloin in the fridge so when I got up at 230 for no good reason this morning I went in search of a recipe I had all the ingredients for and came up with this. It was okay but it could have used some spices. Next time I try it I will add some garlic powder, paprika or some chinese 5 spice powder. It was a little bland for me. Julie
