Loved the flavors, sweet and savory. Easy to make, not too many ingredients. I substituted with pork tenderloin and cut the recipe in half. I served it with sweet potatoes. Will surely make again.

This was easy to prepare and cour company loved it. I served the Roasted Root Vegetables with it and both were really enjoyed by all.
