I really wanted to like this recipe and after reading all the reviews, I felt ready to tackle it but it fell short of fabulous. I took the suggestion of 1 reviewer and marinated the tenderloins in apple juice 24 hours, baked 15 min, drained juices into a pan, topped with the apple butter mixture and continued to bake. My meat thermometer malfunctioned and I could have overcooked it a bit but I, like other reviewers, found the meat to be dry and tasteless even with overnight marinating. I'm not sure what will fix this. I know I can make it less dry by decreasing the baking time but even though I stabbed it repeatedly with a fork prior to marinating, the taste did not permiate the meat. It wasn't bad, I just had higher hopes. I did make a gravey with the reserved juices and served with a side of sauteed apples.
