      OMG what a great recipe. So much flavor. We love spicey and this dish is spicey. The rub is fantastic, the pork was tender and delicious and the guava glaze was out of this world. I was a little nervous, I'd never used guava paste before, it was so easy to find and use. What a great flavor the rub and glaze imparted into the meat. I did save a little of the glaze to pour over the cooked pork when serving. Thank you for sharing a recipe that has gone into my keeper box as well as My Favorites Cookbook for 2013. Kudos to you my dear breezermom. Thank you for a new family favorite, can't wait to make this for my kids.

      Very good if you like spicey! We had friends over and served this. The prep is so easy, so I was able to sit and talk instead of being in the kitchen the whole time. I thought I would have a hard time finding Guava Paste, but found it right away in the mexican aisle at our local grocery store. The paste does take a bit longer than expected to dissolve. Great alternative to all the other pork tenderloin recipes out there.
