Indonesian Pork Tenderloiin

We are all busy and one of the last things that most people want to do when they get home from work is to spend hours in the kitchen cooking dinner. I adore this recipe because it is so simple and flavorful, yet tastes like you must have been slaving away for hours. The longest part of this dish is cooking time and while the tenderloin is in the oven you can have a glass of wine and relax. I know that you are looking at the ingredient list asking yourself how all of these flavors work but trust me they do. Serve this with honey roasted sweet potatoes and baked parmesan zucchini and squash for a complete meal!
