Five stars to this great tasting Tenderloin with cranberries. Other than scaling the tenderloin to half I used the rest of the ingredients as posted and happy I did as that cranberry sauce was as good as I expected it to be. I am sure this would be perfect for pork roasts as well. Into my recipe drawer for this recipe!

We really liked this pork tenderloin cooked this way -- it is so tender and so good. I did cook ours longer than the time indicated but ours were fairly thick. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe for pork tenderloin.
