MY REVIEW

"My family and friends loves this recipe when I served it the first time and has been a go to one for Pork Tenderloin. I always have it marinated ready in the freezer. When I buy the Pork Tenderloin I make up the marinade and put in the freezer bag with the Pork Tenderloin and freeze ready for use. I also use this marinade on chicken wings. Delicious"

"I did this much quicker by pre slicing the tenderloin in 1 inch round slices then I lightly pounded the loin before marinating for 20 min. I cooked it on 425 for 12 min."
