"But, pork was not cooked in 30 minutes, and had to be cooked for another 30.I changed the glaze for Tangerine, and I used a alb pork loin. This could be the cause for the undercooking. But, I liked it and I will do it again!"
"My boyfriend said this was the best dish I have ever cooked! I followed the recipe exactly except I left out the thyme. I was simple and delicious. The meat was tender, juicy and flavorful. The leftovers were all gone before bedtime!I made this again for a family gathering of 15 people. EVERYONE loved this and asked for the recipe. I made 4 tenderloins and they were all gone! Definitely a keeper recipe!"
