    Thanks TOH for printing this Port Tenderloin Roast (long ago). it was originally my Mother's, who lived in So. County St. Louis, Mo. Her name was Irene. However; the Recipe traveled to South East Texas (near the Texas/Louisiana State Line) with me when I moved. I gave this Recipe to a Co-Worker, and she and her family requested and enjoyed it so much that she eventually got it all copied down and submitted to TOH. She is still a good retired friend now, and probably makes it even more frequently. We both still live in East Texas (BMT/PTAR Area) and I enjoy tremendously making this for Family and Friend. No one can seem to eat enough of it at one sitting. The one (1) Item Ms. Nancy left out of the Glazed is that I Finley Chop-Up a Sweet Vandalia White Onion (Small/Medium Size) and combine/mix/cook with the Pressures/Mustard/ Brown Sugar/Butter Mixture. When the entire mixture is cook down and dissolve you spoon or brush on mixture to Pork Loin, Roast or Ham (and let it run down the sides) whether you did it the Oven, Barb-B-Cue Pit., or Rotisseries the Pork Lion. A Hint: Always place aluminum foil or foil pan under the meat when glazing/basting, because the brown sugar/apricot preserve mixtures is hard to remove once it is baked on. This mixture if you wish to quadruple, the Glazing Recipe will keep in the refrigerator for a year Thanks Again TOH, for your inspiring Food Recipes that you present and the Helpful Kitchen Hints and Solutions.
