    Very, very good. Took a long time to reduce the sauce but we thought the results were great. Served with sweet potato mashed with orange/mango juice and plain mashed white potato & garlic and sautéed spinach. Also rosemary bread (Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day). Recommend this.

    This recipe is fairly easy to make and the taste is outstanding. I would be proud to serve this for a special occasion.

    Easy and good. I had to double the recipe since I had a package of 2- 1.5 # tenderloins. Probably could have gone with a single recipe of the maple ginger sauce. The sauce did not reduce as much as I would have liked. Meat was tender. Okay - I may make again.

    Made this many times and love it. Added smoked paprika to the spices which added some nice kick and depth. Perfect for entertaining. Served with shredded and sauteed Brussels sprouts and baked butternut squash. Looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

    I made this for the first time as my entree for Christmas dinner. I had 8 adults and 3 children to serve. This was the hit of dinner. Every adult wanted seconds, and any pieces left on the children's plates were quickly eaten by the adults also. This was so moist and tasty. The combination of the rub on the pork and the fresh ginger sauce was absolutely succulent. This one is definitely a keeper!

    This is a fantastic recipe, I have made many times. I use pork loin roast as well. Have even put in the crock pot. Family loves it and it is really simple. Must use grade B or A maple sryup. Good for company and special occasion as well as everyday. Great with roasted sweet potato and garlic green beans.

    The pork was delicious, but the sauce was sickeningly sweet. We just threw it out. I would definitely make the pork again without the sauce, it really doesn't need it anyway.

    Excellente recette! C'était délicieux! Le petit goût piquant des épices sur le porc et le sucré de la sauce fait un mélange exquis! Recette réussie! Je la referai!

    So good! Easy enough for everyday but tasty enough for special occasions. Served with mashed sweet taters and green beans P:

    This dish is easy to make, impressive to serve, and absolutely delicious. I like to serve it with simple brown rice so the sause doesn't go to waste. Mmm good!

    If you love the taste of sweet and spicy, then this is the recipe for you! It is in my opinion, the best. I served it to company and everyone wanted the recipe.

    Yummie - this was some of the best pork I've had in a long time - the sauce was the key - it was outstanding.

  • Gibby007 Posted: 03/21/10

    I thought this was outstanding and will definitely make it again. I used 1/3 cup of maple syrup based on others opinions that the sauce was too sweet. I also thickened the sauce with a teaspoon of flour because I didn't want it to be too watery. I still had to reduce it for a long time. The sauce tastes very sweet on its own but in combination with the spice rubbed pork it's perfect. I used about 1/4 teaspoon of salt since I prefer lower sodium recipes. I served this with a butternut squash and leek risotto, steamed broccoli and crusty french bread - just for hubby and myself but it's definitely worthy of a special occasion.

    Our favourite Pork Tenderloin Recipe! We've made it 3 times now and will be making it a fourth time tomorrow :) Easy to prepare and flavourful. Be careful not to over-cook the meat and I would do 1.5x the sauce. There's barely enough to go around otherwise.

    Love this recipe!! Made it for the second time in 2 weeks last night (we craved the flavors!). I grate my own fresh Ginger & use pure grade B maple syrup (wondering if those who thought it too sweet used "pancake syrup" that is made from corn syrup with artificial maple flavoring). Like others have mentioned -- I cook the sauce down a lot longer than 10min. Easy to make & fantastic!

    Great meal. My husband loved the meat by itself and the sauce by itself and was wild about the combination. I made two modifications; first I did not refrigerate the meat after the rub was applied, and I only used one quarter cup maple syrup. Also, I browned the pork in an ovenproof skillet, and just placed the whole thing in the oven. No broiler pan to wash. This was easy and so delicious. We will make it again.
