Made half a recipe and was very good and moist. I can’t figure out how to baste with pan juices when you have it on a rack though.

One of my favorite pork tenderloin recipes. Something about the apricot really adds to the flavor of the pork. (I make with chicken broth vs. Sherry)Coupon for $1 off of any fresh pork product.

But, pork was not cooked in 30 minutes, and had to be cooked for another 30.I changed the glaze for Tangerine, and I used a alb pork loin. This could be the cause for the undercooking. But, I liked it and I will do it again!

My boyfriend said this was the best dish I have ever cooked! I followed the recipe exactly except I left out the thyme. I was simple and delicious. The meat was tender, juicy and flavorful. The leftovers were all gone before bedtime!I made this again for a family gathering of 15 people. EVERYONE loved this and asked for the recipe. I made 4 tenderloins and they were all gone! Definitely a keeper recipe!

I love this recipe. It has made the recipe box I keep for good dinner choices. The pork is not over taken with a fruity taste which I like.
