    Made this with boneless pork ribs & it was wonderful. Saut├ęd the onions for just a bit before adding them to the sauce. Also substituted balsamic for the red wine vinegar bc it was on hand.

    So good, but sauce was too spicy for kiddos. Make sure you cut the tenderloin pretty thick. Some of my slices were too thin and overcooked easily.

    Very good but too spicy hot. I'll cut down on the red pepper next time.
