    Is this real spicy? I love spicy but some of my family. I’d love to make this but need to make sure it’s not overly spicy first.

    Question: Has anyone tried this recipe with a family sized pork loin? The loin cut fits my budget better than the tenderloin. Maybe I could cook it with double the spices?

    I made an extra batch of the spices, quartered 6 potatoes, placed the potatoes on top of the tenderloins, sprinkled the spices over top, drizzled everything with honey, then cooked as directed. OMG! these were the best pork tenderloins and best potatoes we’ve enjoyed in quite a while! Thank you, Crockingirls!
