Very easy recipe - the tenderloin was very tender and flavorful. However, do not leave the pan sitting with sauce inside while you eat! The sauce quickly becomes thick and tar-like making clean-up a bigger chore than it needs to be! I agree with a previous poster - I'd love to see this adapted to the slow cooker. I served this with jasmine rice and an Asian veggie mix and everyone, even the son who claims to hate pork, cleaned their plates.


Love this! I am making it again for Christmas Eve and have had rave reviews. The sauce is excellent. For the pork, I wrap each tenderloin in aluminum foil after drizzling with olive oil and a generous sprinkling of Montreal Steak seasoning, and then bake in the oven. This cuts down on time and makes for an easy but excellent dish to serve a crowd (I usually have 30-40 people). You will not be disappointed!!!


As promised, here to report that this sauce is DELICIOUS! Thank you! :D


I'm excited!! I made the sauce and am marinating the meat right now. Later, I'll roast it in the sauce. This sauce has such delicious taste combinations! I think it's improved with the kind of jam I happened to find today at Grocery Outlet named "Othentic" brand from Poland. Less sugar and more ripe plum/prune taste. I'll post after eating this sublime dish. Thank you!! :D


I made this recipe and it was wonderful. Quick and easy and tasted like I had worked for hours on it!


I made homemade plum jam and was looking for a recipe to use it up. This was by far the best recipe for pork and plum jam I could find. Easy, and perfectly delicious.


This was wonderful the first time I made it. Made note to myself to make more of the glaze/sauce next time. I keep wondering if it could be done in a slow cooker. I do a much bigger tenderloin. Almost 3 pounds.
