This was so delicious and easy to make. It is a nice flavor of not too much spice and is wonderful. It took a little longer to cook the pork in my oven..more like 45 mins. I served it with sweet potato medallions-which complemented the maple syrup flavor-and grilled zucchini. I would HIGHLY recommend this dish. You really can't make it without the sauce I agree with other reviews.
Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Chipotle Sauce
The smokiness of adobo sauce calls for a robust Grade A Dark or Grade B maple syrup.
