This was good but not one of my favorites, I would make it again. Seems the pork needed something more, just not sure what that would be maybe just more Moyo and we really didn't like the cooked onion. I was not familiar with Mojo so I bought the Goya Bitter Orange because that is all that was available at the store and priced at $2.59. My changes: The smallest tenderloin I could find that day was 1 1/4 lbs so I used it all, I used 4 T of mojo, 1 red onion, and of course I didn't measure the Crema I just took what I wanted. What I would do next time is not prepare the onion in the vinegar, water & white wine vinegar, I would just use the raw red onion, and I would season the pork loin a bit more with Salt, pepper and mojo.
