Reviews for Special Pork Tenderloin
"Good and a little different than our usual. I used boneless pork loin chops instead of the tenderloin, which worked out fine."
"We loved it but my husband added a little ground cayenne pepper to the sauce mixture to it spice it up a bit."
"This is one of my family's new favorite dinners. I serve it over brown rice. It is simply delicious! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!"
"Great way to prepare pork tenderloin! We like a little more zing, so next time I will bump up the spices, but the sauce was very tasty, and not sweet. I served it on a bed of rice."
"I have been making this recipe for over 10 years. It is a hit everytime I entertain."
