Delicious! The marinade gives the pork a very nice flavor. Each of my pork tenderloins were about a pound a piece so I didn't end of with much marinade left for the sauce. But no worries, I just stirred in some extra maple syrup and mustard in with the wine and it came out perfectly. Thank you for the recipe. Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.
