    This recipe is beyond amazing. I didn't change a thing. Just made sure to check the temperature frequently after 30 min. It was juicy and extremely flavorful. Oh, the only thing I changed was the Rosemary, I didn't have fresh so I used dry.

    Great recipe I ’ve made this many times. It’s very easy to make, really tasty and a big hit with all the family. I probably don’t use the full amount of oil and I also use slightly less honey but it’s great regardless

    Have no oven so had to improvise with a skillet. Still turned out pretty good, especially the sauce! Couldn’t glaze the tenderloin but cut into medallions. Will try again with oven and expect it to be even better. 7 out of 10!

    This turned out great I doubled the sauce and when it was done cooking I removed the tenderloin to rest and wisked heavy cream to the sauce. What am amazing addition. Served over rice a roni and peas. Wow everyone raved!,

    While my guests and boyfriend really enjoyed this recipe, I’m not sure I would call it the most amazing ever. It is a wonderful recipe and my guests asked for the deets. It is simple and I did choose to marinate and serve with mashed potatoes. I’ll bet I make it again I just can’t give it a full 5 stars, personally.

    Well done! This 'marinade' is excellent! I have used this recipe several times with different guests, and everyone has loved it. Check the pork temperature repeatedly after 30 minutes, and keep in mind it will continue to cook a little more even after you remove it from the oven. I do use it as a marinade too, so I get the tenderloins out of the fridge and put the marinade right onto the pork in a flat pan. I let the pan sit on the counter for about 5 hours before I transfer it all to Corningware for baking.

    Delicious. Got rave reviews, and it’s so easy. Cut the cooking time by 5 min and it was good and tender. Served with wild rice and roasted Brussels sprouts.

    My husband really enjoyed this. I did cook longer than the time mentioned as we like our pork more toward medium-well than medium.

    Made this tonight as per recipe, with the exception of substituting lemon juice for the orange juice (didn't have any) and amping up the garlic a tad since we are devotees. Marinated the pork for about 5 hours, and it turned out very moist and tasty. Cooked quickly so watch your temps. A very good recipe and DH loved it. Will make again.

    Ok. Made the recipe just as printed but marinated it in the fridge for about 1 hour prior to cooking.

    Good! But my wife is Filipino and cooks spare ribs and pork loin all the time. Her recipe uses fresh coconut milk and brown sugar instead of Dijon mustad & honey. Same amount of garlic and 2 or 3 bird's eye hot chili peppers (very hot) hopped up. Marinate 2 hours, barbecue 15-20 minutes over medium-low coals.

    Awesome. I make pork tenderloin all the time but my daughter said this was the best I have made. Cooked a little longer than suggested and broiled for a few minutes. I did marinate in the fridge for the day as well
