"I got this one from AllRecipes.com, but it was originally intended for pork chops so I had to alter it to suit the tenderloins we had. Also based on reviews there I adjusted the amount of the seasonings, and it is nothing short of amazing. Probably it would work roasting them as well, but I did it in a skillet on the stove."
