    I wanted to try a new recipe for Tenderloin in the oven. Gave this recipe a try and followed the recipe as is. Turned out very good and tender. I would make again. I am going to make this recipe with chicken thighs. Will pour all the sauce over the chicken and baste during cooking. Should be yummy.

    Had to make 1/4 of the ingredients as I only roasted 1. I cook using a bbq thermometer that measures both the oven and meat temperatures so I don't have to time things and over/undercook. It sure has been a blessing. Anyway, I only had to cook it for 45 minutes to reach 160 which only allowed for 3 rounds of basting. Didn't look as pretty as the picture so I let the meat rest for a little bit. Turned the oven to broil and let it cook right under the flame for about 5 minutes. Now it looks like the pic! Tasted great, the leftovers may have even been a bit tastier. Definitely a keeper.

    Made this for company last week. It was delicious. Making it again tonight. Followed the directions except only cooked it for 1 hour after the initial 15 minutes. Carla Villanova Abernathy

    This was soooooo goooooood! I didn't spoon the mixture over the pork as it cooked. I doubled the amount of glaze I made and poured all of it over the pork as it cooked. So juicy, the flavor was amazing.
