Pampered Chef: Pork Tenderloin

  1. Can someone help me? I have never cooked a pork tenderloin in the oven or micro. I have heard alot about a BBQ pork tenderloin but I have no idea what to do or where to start with this. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    I make a pork tenderloin in the micro at least once a week! I've done the Jamaican and teh Smokey BBQ and this week I bought one of the pre-marinated tenderloins from my grocery store and did that... I usually throw in some quartered baby red potatoes, YUMMY!

    DH LOVES it, it's one of his favorite meals and takes me about 15-18 minutes start to finish :)
