Delicious! I only made pork for two, but the entire amount of sauce and it was perfect! I had center cut loin chops in the freezer, so I used them but pounded them a bit. Hard to imagine something so simple to prepare would be so tasty - but this was! Thanks for another keeper - this will be on our dinner rotation pretty frequently!

Very tasty. I cut amount of pork in half, but made full amount of sauce to go on my noodles. I skipped the green onion.

Delicious! It came out perfectly moist and tender and the sauce is ever so good – I doubled it, do you blame me! Wish I had some rice to spoon over it, I’ll remember that next time. Such a good meal. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for Players Favorites - 5 Star Gems.

Oh my! I can see why this made the Best of 2016 list. It is DELICIOUS and easy. Win-win. After reading the reviews I decided to double the sauce so there would be plenty to spoon over rice. I also added broccoli, yellow squash, and orange pepper to the mix. The flavors here are wonderful. The orange flavor shines in a slightly sweet sauce. Yum! =)

What a great recipe Teresa. We love pork tenderloin and really enjoyed this quick and easy to make treat. The teriyaki was perfect and set the tone for the tender, delicious tenderloin. Garnished with green onions and toasted sesame seeds and served over steamed Jasmine rice and cinnamon pecan roasted butternut squash, for a memorable meal. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for the Best of 2016.
