Please boil marinade before serving. Parasites live in pork.

We made this for Christmas day dinner and it was so good this meal is our new Christmas tradition! Also, our grocery store didn't have all the root vegetables available so we subbed for potatoes and carrots-- still delicious!

My boyfriend and I saw Paula make this on TV and it looked so good we made it for Christmas day dinner (I meant to post this earlier but just registered)- I already can't wait for next Christmas as this meal is our new tradition! Also, our grocery store didn't have all the root vegetables so subbed it for potatoes and carrots- still delicious!

This is the best tenderloin recipe I have ever tried! I have made it several times and it is always a hit! I ALWAYS double the marinade, it is the best. Good even served cold on a greens salad smile) A+ on this one Paula!
