This tasty recipe was given to me by Impera_Magna in response to a request for recipes containing loquats. I used presliced boneless pork loin chops instead of a whole tenderloin and substituted Splenda for the sugar. The results were fantastic! The Madeira gives the fruit sauce an amazing flavor. For those who have never had loquats, they are a small subtropical fruit that taste similar to a plum.
