Sweet Pork Tenderloin

Recipe by Rhonda in Texas

My friend, Jennifer, made this for me while I was recuperating from the birth of my second daughter. It was so delicious (and SO EASY)that I just HAD to have the recipe! Thanks, J-Lo! I have also made this with Hormel tenderloins and cut in half (lengthwise)

Excellent flavor in this recipe. I refused to turn my oven on since it is so hot here so I placed the onion, pork and sauce on heavy duty aluminun foil (doubled) rolled up the sizes to make a barrier for the sauce and grilled mine on medium indirect heat for 1 hour and it turned out very moist and very tender. Served with Jasmine rice. Thanks so much for this keeper recipe.
