Super easy and delicious. I followed the recipe for the seasonings but cooked it in the microwave in my Pampered Chef covered baker in 7 and 1/2 minutes. Came out super moist. I will be making this often.

I didn't measure the sage or the maple syrup. I probably used 1 Tbsp of sage and 1/4 cup maple syrup. The pork came out super moist. It had a very nice maple and sage flavor. I served it with roasted brussel sprouts tossed with sage. Great for a weeknight meal, but could be dressed up for a nicer occassion. Would definitely make again.

Quick easy and delicious - but next time I'll marinate the pork a bit longer as I felt the maple flavor wasn't quite strong enough to balance the sage. The family loved it though and we'll definitely make this one again.

Excellent as our Christmas dinner. I did make more marinade and marinaded it longer. Moist, tasty and got raves from a crowd use to a more expensive beef tenderloin at Christmas.

I can't believe this was rated a 5. It lacked flavor and it was not pretty. I ended up brushing it with more maple syrup to give it a little lift. That really didn't help. I definitely will not be making this again. If I were to make it again, I would marinate it longer and brown it before roasting. That might help. However, it was easy.

pretty boring - there are much better tenderloin recipes out there. I am sure it would be better on the grill, but as it was it didn't brown and took longer to cook (although I did have a lot of stuff in the oven.) It did not have much flavor.

I'm not wild about pork, but my Dad is. I decided to make this for him and it was excellent. My dad also LOVED it! I followed the recipe exactly--don't forget to tent the foil at the end. The meat was very juicy.
