salt and pepper to taste

honey, or to taste
Forget the butter...too messy! I rubbed my two tenderloins with olive oil and the seasonings. Everything else about the recipe is perfect and the pork was SO moist, tender and delicious! The leftovers make the most wonderful pork sandwiches. Thanks....a hit with the family, and so easy too!
I liked this the first time I made it however the second time I did not like it at all. Not sure if it is the size pan I used or not but by the time it was done cooking it was practically covered in juices. I prefer my meat a liitle drier and crispy on the edges but moist inside.
This was really delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. The only problem I had was getting the butter to stick to the loin. I patted it dry first, but the butter just continued to come off on my hands, so I mixed the butter with the salt, pepper and herbs and was then able to get it to stick to the pork. I will definitely make this again, we loved the contrast of the sweet preserves against the salty pork.
This dish was so yummy! The tenderloin was so perfectly moist and the glaze was to die for. The only thing I did different was to put a fresh sprig of rosemary under and on top of the tenderloin. You will want to make sure that you reserve enough apricot mixture to pour over the finished product!
Made as written with the exception of the sherry. I didn't have any on hand and used a dry burgandy wine. The tenderloin was wonderful and moist, but the sauce made it so much better. I microwaved the remaining sauce and drizzled over the pork medalions. Will definitely make this recipe again.
This was very easy to make. I didn't bother with rubbing butter on the pork. Instead I sprinkled salt, pepper and some fresh rosemary on it prior to baking. For the sauce, I used fresh garlic, sherry and apricot jam. I didn't bother with the honey. My family really liked this dish. I served with roasted potatoes and sautéed sugar snap peas.
I changed the recipe up a bit because I couldn't find apricot preserves in the store. I used peach instead, and grand marnier instead of sherry. My pork tenderloin wasn't dry at all, and the sauce adds everything you could want.
Made this tonight and it was a hit. I loved how easy it was to make. I made this recipe with only one minor change. I brushed the tenderloin with olive oil rather than using the butter, otherwise I followed the directions and it was awesome. Served it with green beans and mushrooms and mashed potatoes and a salad. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
