A marinade with maple syrup, curry and orange peel gives this lean entree a wonderful glaze and tangy citrusy sauce. It’s a favorite with Penny Fraser of Calgary, Alberta.

"We did not find this pork as flavorful as I hoped."

"My family loves this pork dish! I like to use a pork sirloin roast instead of the tenderloins. The recipe is easy to prepare and always turns out great."

"I make this recipe frequently when we have dinner guests. It is extremely tasty and easy to prepare. I marinate the night before and then just pop it in the oven, keeping me out of the kitchen when we have guests."

"Very easy recipe to put together and the meat stayed really moist and flavourful. The only change I made was to glaze the meat while baking with the extra sauce and spooning over the pan juices to serve."
