MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2012

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.

MY REVIEW

Very good and easy to make. I used 1/2 t. ground ginger instead of fresh gingerroot.
