"Excellent recipe and very quick to put on the table for a bbq."
"This was wonderful!!!! We used the basting as a dipping sauce and it was just heavenly! We will definitely make this again!"
"This recipe is delicious. The pork was so moist and tender. Will definitely make this again."
"I am so sorry. I rated this recipe thinking it was pork tenderloin diane. I didn't even look at the ingredients. This does look good though."
"I made this meal last night and my husband and I enjoyed it. The sauce was different; don't know if I'd to make again. I will definitely cut down on the lemon pepper and lemon juice. It takes away from the pork taste too much."
"This was just fantastic and so easy!! I just threw it in the oven instead of grilling. Definately a keeper!!"
