I wanted something new, and this hit the spot. I love the glaze! I used a grainy dijon mustard. I don't care for mustard, but I couldnt taste it at all in the recipe. Which is a good thing! Also I added a little brown sugar to the rub. When the pork was almost done I brushed a bit of the orange sauce over it, and it nicely carmelized. Then I sliced and served with the sauce over it. I would use a meat thermometer for pork tenderloin, it can dry out easy. Cook till about 150 degrees. And let rest. Some ovens may run hotter than others and a meat thermometer is great insurance. Mine was done way before the hour was up.

I've had this tasty recipe saved for quite a long time Norah's Girl, so tonight I decided to make this treat and what a treat it was. I wasn't sure how it would work with the bitter orange but It was beautiful. The sauce was too die for, savory, semi sweet, tart and tangy. Loved the combo of orange and ginger. I did strain the sauce for my picky dh and he loved it. The only change to your recipe, was to not add the cornstarch and to let the sauce reduce slowly. What a beautiful, smooth, silky delite. I cooked the pork tenderloin for 45 minutes and it was perfect. Thank you for sharing your recipe, which my dh has asked me to make again.

Great recipe. I just used fresh rosemary, used sweet soy sauce and added fresh chilli and used this mixture as marinade and left it in fridge overnight. It was really delicious and all tastes blended nicely. I think that fresh chilli added quite a lot to this taste. Thank you for this recipe.

Sweet and Savory. I didn't have any fresh Ginger so I just used the powder. I am not sure what whole grain mustard is, so I used a combination of yellow and Dijon. my 3 and 1 year olds just loved it. ate it all and asked for 3rds

Tried this and loved it. It was easy and very tasty. Next time I may try more ground mustard as the taste of the mustard didn't come through. I may also try the sauce with a berry jam for less sweet, more savory flavor.

I took a couple of liberties with your recipe - I used Ginger/orange marmalade thus the added ginger for the sauce was omitted. I cut the recipe back to two servings. I had bought 4 small pieces of tenderloin on sale and adapted your recipe to match the amount of meat. The other change to the recipe was not to use any cornstarch - I used the sauce as a glaze. I baked the 4 pieces at 400 degrees for 15 minutes then painted them with the Ginger marmalade/Soy sauce and baked for a further 15 minutes until the meat was golden. Thanks Julie - I hope you forgive me for not following the recipe to a Tee - It was delicious 7 April 08 Made this againwe really do enjoy this recipe. This time I followed your recipe closely - used the cornstarch poured the sauce over the meat just before serving. The only thing I didn't have was the coarse grain mustard - Mmm guess I will have to make it again. Thanks for a very enjoyable meal.

Excellent! I am not a big port eater....this was great and I will do pork loin more often now. Especially since the recipe was so easy to make.
