This is the easiest recipe ever. Wonderful for a special dinner. I love making this for company because it takes no time and I can spend time with my guests and not in the kitchen. The tenderloin cuts with a fork and looks and tastes like you spent a lot of time preparing it. Beautiful with the apricot glaze/sauce.
