A simple glaze made with apricot preserves lends a delightful zest to this tender pork. It's so fuss-free and delicious, you'll make it again and again. —Crystal Holsinger, Surprise, Arizona
- 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1 cup apricot preserves
- 3 tablespoons sherry or reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
