I modified this just a bit. Used the same ingredients but rubbed it on the tenderloin about 4-5 hours ahead of cooking so it could soak in more. Felt it gave the meat more flavor instead of just sitting on the outside. Will make this again. Would be good on pork chops too I think.

I don't usually like a bunch of sugar on meat but we tried this last night and loved it. It's got a tangy warm sweet taste to it which went well with the pork.

Terrific recipe! Great when you're pressed for time, it was simple to whip together and tasted fabulous. Excellent for pork sandwich leftovers the next day, too! Served with zucchini & baked pineapple.

I didn't have any cinammon, but even without it this was absolutely delicious!! My only sugestion though is to line your pan with foil, as if you don't, you will be chipping it off the pan...the sugar in it. But by all means don't let that deter you, so simple and absolutely great!
