I am always looking for good recipes to use for Pork Tenderloin. There’s just something not too exciting about a pork tenderloin. Well, tonight I stand corrected! This recipe is really delicious and easy to prepare with the typical fridge ingredients. I bet it would be even better on the barbeque! I served it with Cilantro Jasmine Rice & Steamed Broccoli kicked up with a tablespoon of garlic. Enjoy!!

1/2 c barbeque sauce
1 tsp ginger, freshly grated

1) mix the chili powder through the pepper and sprinkle on the pork tenderloins. place on a foil covered baking sheet. let sit for 20-30 minutes.
2) preheat the oven to 425.
3) bake tenderloins for 20 minutes.
4) while the tenderloins are baking, mix the last 5 ingredients in a sauce pan and melt on medium low heat. in the last 5 minutes of baking the tenderloins, spread some of the apricot glaze over them.
