Pork Tenderloin Piquant

READY IN: 6hrs 50mins
Recipe by *OzMan*

Got this from the newspaper awhile back and decided to try it. I really enjoyed this dish, and maybe you will as well. :) This marinade is also great on Boneless pork loin as well. Recipe can be doubled. I served this with steamed carrots and wild rice. Prep time includes marinating time.

My family and I LOVED this recipe!! I had to eyeball ingredient amounts because I had a 2 1/2 pound pork tenderloin in the freezer, but it turned out great. I only marinaded it for 7 hours (because that is all the time I had available) but it did not seem to make a difference. My meat thermometer said pork only needs to be cooked to 160 degrees, so that is what I went by so the pork wouldn't turn out dry.... it was nice and moist. I forgot to baste the meat during cooking, but after the meat was done I just took it off the rack, cut it up into slices and put it in the marinade in the bottom of the pan. SOOOO good. Thanks OzMan, we will add this to the family recipe book.
