Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is always an easy and tasty dish.  I find it very versatile and easy to marinate in different concoctions.  So, I researched and found a new one and let me tell you, it’s delicious! It’s sweet yet a little tangy and the extra caramelization from the broiler added an extra delicious flavor.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
