I had a pork loin that I wanted to try something new with, so good old Google to the rescue. The recipe I found sounded really good and simple so we gave it a go last night. The flavor was delicious. All my kids loved it. The only thing I need to change was to cut the cooking time way down, since the outside became hard/tough. The inside was moist and delicious as was the sauce. We are for sure making this one again! There were some good suggestions in the reviews, so it is worthwhile checking them out if you plan to try this.
