Island Pork Tenderloin

Kim Biegacki


Wow, I am so excited!!! I finally conquered the "pork tenderloin" tonight for dinner. I have tried making this several time with no success. It would always come out very tough because I would over cook it. This came out so tender, moist and delicious with the seasoned crust on the outside it was spicy too!
My husband & I both loved this delicious recipe from P90X nutritional cookbook.
