We loved this. I didn't have any cherry preserves so I just used frozen mixed berries and boiled them down til they were thick, added sweetener and used that instead of preserves.

This recipe was wonderful. I used a little over 5 lbs of tenderloin, and there was plenty of marinade to coat. I did think the consistency of the marinade was quite thick, so I added about 1/3...

Rather than using Smucker's Cherry Preserves, I use a jar of sour cherries, a tablespoon of sugar, and corn starch to thicken. It makes the compote have a zestier flavour.

This is the first review I have ever done on this site, but I felt compelled because this recipe is SOOO GOOOOD!! The changes I made were out of necessity because of what was in the cupboard, n...

Fantastic! The smokey flavor from the grill really added to the dish. Didn't have cherry preserves, so I used frozen cherries, sugar, and corn starch.
