  1. Does anyone know if I can cook this in the oven if so what temp how long and would I do it the same way


  1. Well, it couldn't be any easier, the only minor change is that I used only 2 garlic cloves. Great Great flavors, grilling time was right on the money, and we loved these. Keeper here.. Made for PRMR tag..
  2. This pork recipe is simply delicious. The herbs and garlic in the middle gave the meat a wonderful flavor and aroma. The meat was very tender, too. Thank you so much! Made for PRMR game.
  3. This is so easy and fantastic even the leftovers are getting rave reviews! And the next day it still looks fantastic! Can't wait to try this on the BBQ this spring as ours is covered in several inches of snow right now; we grilled it on the stove. We used a 4lb. pork loin as the pork tenderloins were barely a pound a piece and not cost effective, besides. Thanks, AZPARZYCH! Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook tag as recommended by weekend cooker.
