"Great quick weekday supper. Extra sauce to spoon over - yes and foil to line the roaster - definitely yes!! I used orange juice to thin the glaze instead of water and leftovers make great sandwiches."

"Super good, super easy! Hardest part is keeping the sauce from sliding off the meat during baking. Heating extra sauce to drizzle over the cooked meat is a good idea."

"I made this this evening. It was so so so good we thought. I only made one tenderloin for the 2 of us, but made all the sauce. I heated the extra in the micro and drizzled it overtop of the cooked meat. O, yeah, don't foget to cover the baking sheet with foil!!"
