Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin – This was one of the first recipes that got me very interested in food. I used to make it a lot when I first started cooking, but I hadn’t made it in awhile.

The sauce is what is so great about this. Apricot preserves and Dijon mustard – so yummy! I always make more than is called for so that I have enough to dip, dip, dip away!
