I have tried all the pork tenderloin recipes but this is by far the BEST. I double the ingredients and purchase extra tenderloin. Great leftover!! My husband and I have this 2 or 3 times a month. Love it!

This was an easy and very tasty recipe. We used pork tenderloin chops and just used the basting sauce as a marinade (along with the dry rub). It worked out very well and as a bonus the cooking time was only 4 minutes instead of 25.
