Originally published November 10, 2007 – a great idea for an easy weeknight dinner!

Just a quick post today because we are heading up to Park City to celebrate our anniversary. Two years tomorrow!!

I made this quite some time ago, and to be honest, I can’t remember if I changed anything. I got this recipe from Mommy Cooks (blog no longer online) – it was delicious!! I had a pork tenderloin in the freezer, and saw this recipe and new it would be perfect. I’ve never gone wrong with one of her recipes!! (Updated February 2013 – made it again, and it’s perfect as listed below!)

    I think this looks great. Just to clarify; are you using pork tenderloin, or pork loin? I have never encountered a 3 lb pork tenderloin. Thanks.
