"This one was a good one too. I made it per recipe as always the first time I try a new one. Next time will add a few ingredients to it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2011

"Great quick recipe. The salsa makes it look like you chopped vegetables! I added an onion and cooked it with the pork and used apricot preserves. I used a homemade taco seasoning that is fine with beef but it must "absorb" differently with the pork tenderloin because it was much spicier for comparable proportions."
