MY REVIEW

"OOPS! Instead of CRANBERRIES, I used pomegranates. But wouldn't cherries be good, too?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2011

"My guests loved, loved, loved this! ONLY, I changed it up a bit as I always use what I have on hand if I can. Instead of the cherries, I had dried pomegranates as well as fresh. I used both paired with a half can of frozen cherry pomegranate juice to which I added a bit of cornstarch beaten into cold water to thicken the sauce. I pounded the tenderloin before cooking and cooked it until it was crispy. I think it adds more flavor. It was delicious and so easy! I also tripled the recipe as I had 12 guests."
