"This was easy to prepare and turned out very well; the whole family enjoyed it. I am always worried that pork will be dry and this was not, even the piece I tried without the sauce. I will definitely make it again."

"I made a double batch of this recipe. While the flavoring was great, I will not double the cayenne pepper as it was a bit to spicy for my boys. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again!!!"

"I really liked this but my husband didn't, he declared it to sweet. A wonderful recipe but I will not be making it again."

"Made this using pork steaks instead of the tenderloin. This type of cut created an abundance of pan drippings. I was unsure how much to add to the sauce mixture so I used a 1/3 - 2/3 mixture ratio with the pan drippings and the orange juice. We had expected a bitter flavor from the orange sauce but we were surprised by the sweetness. We LOVED it! Will be making it again!"
