This is a Latin-style recipe with so much flavor, if you are looking for a wonderful dish to serve to guests, I have to suggest this one, and you can stuff the pork and refrigerate up to 24 hours before roasting. If possible purchase the Crosse and Blackwell red currant jelly brand for this. You can easily double the recipe to four tenderloins to serve 8-10 people if desired. If you love flavor, you will love this pork dish!
