"This was an excellent dish for tonight's menu. Although i am a salt-a-holic, the seasoning blend was wonderful, with the exception of excess salt. If you are cooking this recipe, you may want to be careful of adding salt as stated in recipe.

I served this dish with Plain Applesauce, Aspargus Hollandaise, and buttered sweet potato medallions witrh cinnamon sugar baked for about 15 minutes.

It's a keeper!!"

Very tasty! Cook time was not accurate. I used a meat thermometer to ensure it was properly cooked.

The actual ingredients were fabulous! My husband loved the spices and heat. Unfortunately the cook time is wrong, my pork tenderloin was extremely under-cooked. I suggest leaving it in at least 15 minutes longer. Made for great leftover sandwiches!

Recommended time for pork is 30 minutes per pound plus 30 minutes. I will try this out soon, myself and let you know.

Hubby made this for dinner last night, sustituting a few spices for those that we didn't have & also adding a few extra. It turned out very spicy (just how we like it), juicy, & all around delish!
