"I made this the other night for dinner. It's delicious-and super easy. The only thing I did differently than the original recipe was seasoned the outside of each tenderloin with a mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and a pinch of dried thyme and seared them in a little vegetable oil in a skillet before putting them on the rack to bake. The onions turn a dark golden brown from the balsamic vinegar and the apricots add a nice pop of sweetness here and there. They really compliment the juicy, tender pork.

This is a recipe I'll go to often. Thank you, Janice!"
