Top Review by Two Socks

I am only giving this recipe a 3-star rating because the amount of the sage and garlic coating needs to be doubled at least. I had a pork tenderloin that was a little over 1.5 lbs. and I only had enough of the coating to cover one side. I also think there needs to be a lot more sage, so next time, I'll cut the garlic down to a single large clove and up the sage to a quarter cup or so. Even so, it was flavorful and juicy and made a great quick weeknight dinner that tasted pretty good. When I make this again with my variations, I will review again.
