QBabe's Coffee Crusted Pork Tenderloin Question

edited 6:30AM in EggHead Forum
I am going to cook this forum favorite tonight for the first time. I don't have all the stuff I need (including that elusive stuff called "time") for the sauce. But I could get it if you all feel like it's really important. So the question is should I:
1. cook the pork tenderloin without the sauce--it's so good that it stands just fine alone.
2. get everything I need and make the time--it's worth every second.
3. wait until this weekend when I have more of the elusive stuff.[p]Your thoughts, please and thanks![p]Trouble

    Trouble,[p]You know, I love these stupid tenderloins. They are probably the one thing that keeps me from going Kosher and I'm not kidding. I'm not that strong to avoid a good tenderloin. Sigh. [p]This one is great as a standalone. I made the sauce once and it is also fab, but not necessary. Try it without and if you feel it needs something, do the sauce next time.[p]mShark
  • Trouble,[p]MAKE THE SAUCE!!!!!!
    If you have to pass on either the meat or the sauce, pass on the meat! ;-)[p]The sauce is great on lotsa things - burgers, mashed spuds, various small animals...[p]- Andy

    RocketMan, I second that emotion!!! You're so right that is a terrific multiple use sauce.

    Man, you guys are killing me. [p]I'll promise to make the sauce. Next time.[p]But tonight I gotta go with Mollyshark (and happy birthday, Monica!). A tight timetable and a standalone vote from a reputable egger tips the scale. [p]I'll report back with the compare/contrast writing assignment.[p]Thanks, everybody.

  • Trouble,
    I made this last weekend w/out the sauce and it was great. I think you will get rave reviews. And to quote RRP(I think) make the sauce next time and you will kick the compliments even farther down the road.

    yup that was me and I tried to steer Whitetail toward it tonight but alas the rascal doesn't have time and will run his loin nekked!
