Perfect for everyone We all enjoyed this meal and cook it several times a month. Even my husband who doesnt like healthy food cant get enough. I find it tastes best fresh rather than as a left over. The cooking directions vary from each stove , oven and skillet you use. I think this meal is best suited to someone who has cooking experience and can tell when the pork has been seared long enough and baked long enough as you dont want to under cook pork.
Delicious and Simple I made this for dinner tonight, and everyone loved it. My only complaint is that the recipe states that after browning the roast you simply cook it at 450 degrees for 12-16 minutes. There's no way it's going to get done in that amount of time. After it had cooked for about 15 minutes at 450, I reduced the oven temp to 250 and let it sit in there for another 50 minutes. It was perfectly juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside and so worth the wait! Pros: easy to prepare
Wonderful crusty pork - the side needs improvement We LOVED the orange and pistachio/garlic crusted pork tenderloin! The barley and wild rice side dish was a bit bland, otherwise I would have given the dish an awesome rating. It could have benefited from a flavorful drizzle (like the lemon/maple one from the Salmon with Roasted Vegetables and Quinoa recipe). Pros: Delicious pork flavor Cons: Bland barley/rice side
